Government Mandating Sprinklers in Care Homes for Seniors, People with Disabilities
Ontario is the first province to make automatic sprinklers mandatory in care homes for seniors, homes for people with disabilities, and vulnerable Ontarians.
Mandatory sprinklers are part of amendments to the Fire Code and Building Code that will improve fire safety in these occupancies. Other improvements include:
The amendments are based on recommendations made by the Technical Advisory Committee led by the Office of the Fire Marshal and public consultation.
Helping seniors stay safe is a part of Ontario’s Action Plan for Seniors and supports the new Ontario government’s efforts to ensure a just and fair society for all.
