OWNERS OF INDUSTRIAL BUILDING CHARGED WITH FIRE CODE VIOLATION FOR SECOND TIME

News Release-Early this year, the Fire Prevention Division of the Milton Fire Department charged the owners of  an industrial building for a Fire Code violation for a second time for the same offence within two years.Fire Prevention Officers determined the building, which operates as a furniture store that is open to the public, had not had their sprinkler system checked as required by the Ontario Fire Code. As a result, the Milton Fire Department charged the owners accordingly. On Thursday, May 18, 2017, the owners entered a guilty plea and received a fine of $2,800. Charged previously with the same offence in 2015, the owners pled guilty at that time and received a fine of $1,500. The maximum fine for these offences is $50,000 and/or a year in jail.“It’s vitally important that sprinkler systems are maintained in working order as per the Ontario Fire Code,” said Fire Prevention Captain Steve Ellis. “A fire occurred in this building in 2009 and if not for a working sprinkler system, the damage would have been a lot worse.”“Whether it’s a business or a home for a resident, it’s our job to ensure the safety of those in our community,” said Dave Pratt, Acting Fire Chief. “We will persist with inspections and oversight, and issue charges for offences as necessary, to ensure compliance with the Ontario Fire Code for the safety of our community.”For more information on the Milton Fire Department, please visit www.miltonfire.ca.- 30 -For media inquiries, please contact:Hazel CarlinCommunications & Marketing Advisor905-878-7252 ext. 2166Hazel.carlin@milton.ca

MILTON FIRE DEPARTMENT LAUNCHES ANNUAL HOME SAFE HOME PROGRAM

News Release-The Home Safe Home Program is a proactive education program designed to provide fire and life safety information to the public. Operating annually from June to September, Milton Fire Department staff go door-to-door, educating residents on fire safety and promoting free home fire safety inspections.The inspections provide homeowners with vital information on how to protect their loved ones and keep them safe from fire and associated hazards. Topics covered during the inspections include smoke alarms, carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, fire extinguishers, sump pumps and developing a fire escape plan. Last year, Milton Fire Department staff visited over 2,000 homes.“Most fatal fires occur at night when everyone is asleep. That is why it is so important for everyone to have working smoke alarms and CO detectors and for everyone to know what to do when they sound,” said Acting Fire Chief Dave Pratt. “Working smoke alarms and CO detectors will give you the early warning you need for everyone to get out safely.”“We certainly don’t want or expect to be handing out tickets as a result of this program,” said Fire Prevention Captain Steve Ellis. “The Milton Fire Department will work with homeowners to make sure they have the correct number of smoke alarms and CO detectors for their home and that they are in working order. We will do whatever is necessary to make sure everyone is adequately protected.”Failure to comply with the Fire Code smoke alarm requirements can result in a ticket for $235 or a fine of up to $50,000 for individuals and $100,000 for corporations.For more information on the Home Safe Home Program, smoke alarms and CO detectors, please visit http://www.miltonfire.ca/.- 30 -For media inquiries, please contact:Hazel CarlinCommunications & Marketing Advisor905-878-7252 ext. 2166Hazel.carlin@milton.ca
