While not meeting the local fire codes will lead to hefty fines, the top reason why you should buy the dry chemical extinguisher and other fire safety devices is so as to prevent needless deaths and injuries. Investing in the following lifesaving devices will help keep up with the fire code in the Greater Toronto Area.
Dry chemical extinguisher
These are the most important devices you should have. They can put out many types of fires: type A, B, and C. The class A fires are those resulting from combustible materials like wood, paper, and cloth. Class B refers to fires from flammable liquids like gasoline. Class C refers to electrical fires like those resulting from faulty wiring or appliance fires.

The larger extinguishers will be great for homeowners. There are specific extinguishers required for businesses in Toronto. For the ultimate fire protection Toronto, you must ensure that you have the correct amount and sizes of dry chemical extinguishers.
Fire safety plan boxes
Every business is required to have this. The boxes contain fire department-approved fire safety plan. The fire safety plan gives details on fire safety procedures as well as the evacuation procedure. We have boxes that comply with the Ontario Fire Marshall requirements. We mainly serve the GTA but can also ship to other locations across Canada.
Although not required by law, having a home fire plan will come in handy in the event of a fire. If you live in a multi-story building, you need to consider the purchase of an escape ladder. We have strong escape ladders that will make it easy for you to get out in case of a fire.
There are specific regulations regarding the placement of smoke alarms in a business building. Homeowners also need to invest in smoke alarms. To comply with the stringent local fire codes in Ontario, you need smoke alarms placed in every sleeping room and in the hallway. You must also install a smoke alarm on every storey of your building. The smoke alarm should also be installed in the basement. The dual-sensor smoke alarms are the best. They detect fast flaming fires and smoldering fires. For added fire protection, you should place a fire extinguisher in every bedroom closet, in the bathrooms, basement, garage, and kitchen.
Carbon monoxide detectors
In North America, carbon monoxide poisoning is the main cause of accidental poison. This is because the gas is tasteless and odorless. Installing carbon monoxide detectors can keep your family safe.
