The primary purpose of a well designed fire safety plan is to help both occupants and responding personnel in coping with emergency situations. Port Moody Fire Rescue extracts specific information from a fire safety plan to create a pre-incident plan. This information is then linked to the fire apparatus computer to assist the Incident Commander in making quick, precise decisions to aid in life safety. A pre-incident plan is one of the most valuable tools available for aiding responding personnel in effectively controlling an emergency.
A fire safety plan is required by Fire Protection and Emergency Response Bylaw 2835
- Section 19 and the British Columbia Fire Code (BCFC) Section 2.8.2 based on building use or occupancy types. The owner or the owner’s authorized agent of the premises is responsible for providing a fire safety plan as per the BCFC.
