Ont. proposing amendments making CO alarms mandatory

Compliments of SP&T News 26 March 2014

Ontario is taking steps that would make carbon monoxide alarms mandatory in all homes.

The proposed amendments to the Fire Code are based on recommendations from a Technical Advisory Committee led by the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management.

The proposed amendments to the Fire Code will be posted on the Regulatory Registry for 45 days for public comment.

Working with partners to increase fire and carbon monoxide safety is part of the government's plan that is keeping Ontario families safe. The comprehensive plan and its six priorities focus on Ontario's greatest strengths -- its people and its strategic partnerships.

Quick Facts:

Bill 77, an Act to Proclaim Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week and to amend the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997, received royal assent in December 2013.

Approximately 51 people die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning in Canada, including an average of 11 people per year in Ontario.

The Ontario Building Code requires the installation of carbon monoxide alarms in homes and other residential buildings built after 2001.

The Technical Advisory Committee, which was led by the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal and Emergency Management (OFMEM), included members from OFMEM, several provincial ministries, fire services, municipalities, advocacy groups and manufacturers, as well as property owners and managers.
