Building Safety Fire Prevention Training

In Canada building owners are legally responsible for the fire safety of their properties. Our "Building Safety Fire Prevention Training" offers building owners and managers essential fire and life safety knowledge that will give them the confidence to perform a fire safety self-assessment on specific low risk buildings for which they are responsible. Routine fire prevention assessment is an inexpensive form of preventive maintenance that is a sound asset protection strategy, increasing tenant safety, protecting your investment and decreasing building owners' liability.

 

 

Who should take this course?

Building owners or managers of low risk, low hazard public buildings that have a history of fire safety compliance. How do you know if your property fits into this category? Click here for more information.

Fire Safety Code Changes coming soon in British Columbia

In British Columbia the provincial government has proposed significant changes to legislation by introducing the Fire Safety Act. This new Act, which received Royal Assent on May 19, 2017, reminds building owners of their responsibility to ensure their buildings are meeting an acceptable level of fire safety code compliance. Municipalities will be mandated to implement a compliance monitoring system.

British Columbia is proposing significant change to legislation through the Fire Safety Act. This new Act, which received Royal Assent on May 19, 2017, reminds building owners of their responsibility to ensure their buildings meet acceptable level of fire safety code compliance. Municipalities have been mandated to implement a compliance monitoring system.

While it's up to each municipal jurisdiction to implement a compliance monitoring system, most will accomplish this by allowing trained building owners or managers to perform a fire safety self-assessment on their low risk, low hazard properties. This easy to follow Building Safety Fire Prevention Training program provides this education for self-assessment.

Testimonials

“I am pleased to say that your report was the slam dunk that my council needed to move forward with their decision. Thank you so much for your insight and efforts on your report. Your review is guiding much of my focus and I am delighted to have such a clear path to follow. Thank you again for all of your assistance.”

Chief Brett Ogino

Sicamous Fire Department

“I am writing to thank you very much for the valuable presentation you gave to our department on the topic of Fireground Command. The content and related information were thought provoking, and I believe will contribute to all members’ decision making and actions in fire and other emergency responses. And again, thank you for a great presentation.”

Chief Dave Balding

Malahat Volunteer Fire Department - Fireground Command

“The RDCK recently contracted with Fire Wise Consulting Ltd. to perform an inspection and audit of 4 rural firehalls in Beasley, Tarrys, Riondel and Winlaw – all small communities in the West Kootenay. The outcome of the assignment has proven to be a valuable tool for the 4 Fire Chiefs and the RDCK. The report is very readable and provides excellent direction in correcting deficiencies in a non-threatening manner.Furthermore, the report has been well received because of the professional and personal approach by Bob Turley and Glen Sanders in developing the report in consultation with the 4 Fire Chiefs. This has been a most positive exercise for the 4 Fire Departments and the RDCK.”

Jim Gustafson, Chief Administrative Officer

Regional District of Central Kootenay

“The audit conducted by FireWise Consulting Ltd. provided us with a baseline of identified items where we need to improve. The audit also provided affirmation of many areas that we are doing the ‘correct’ things in our operation. There are a number of priority items we are working on; developing a new (governing) policy which clearly identifies the level of service we provide, what priority goals/objectives we will achieve in the coming years, a succession planning tool, and continuation of the defined training for our Fire Fighters.”

Chief Larry Badry

Kaslo

“Beaverly Fire Rescue underwent the audit this past winter and we are very pleased with the results. We found that by helping us to determine what needs to be done and by identifying areas needing improvement, we were provided with a base to develop a strategic plan. The process and results confirmed to the Beaverly Fire Rescue Management Committee the various department roadblocks we face, as well as potential support opportunities available to us. By being solution oriented and assisting us with our concerns in ways as simple as providing sample documents for easy incorporation into our system, my own original fears and concerns proved to be unfounded. I believe that having the opportunity to see our own Fire Department from someone else’s perspective is a very useful tool for myself and the Beaverly Fire Rescue officers and firefighters.”

Chief Bruce Perrin

Beaverley

“I was skeptical about having someone come into our hall and do an audit , as I had no help/guidance for the first 20 years that I was in charge of day to day operations which included all administration duties as well. I would not have been comfortable with auditors that I did not know but [FireWise Consulting] put me at ease right away. There was no negativity about the way things were being done with operations or administration on my end. When we went over the audit [they] asked questions, I answered with why / how we do things the way we do and then [they] made suggestions on how / where I could improve. Since the audit was done I have been able to use it to support my budget objectives as long as I spread them over several years. I have recommended to all that would listen that it is in their best interest to have an outside agency do an audit of their hall operations and administration.”
