A directive from the Ontario Fire Marshal's Office (OFM) requires fire departments to conduct annual inspections and fire drills in all vulnerable occupancies within their municipality.
Story behind the numbers
Fire Prevention staff conducts inspections of vulnerable occupancies to ensure compliance with the Ontario Fire Code. In addition, Fire Prevention staff ensures compliance with the approved fire safety plan for the facility and that staff understand their responsibilities and actions during a fire emergency.
These numbers identify compliance with the OFM directive and identify the number of vulnerable occupancy residents whose homes comply with the Ontario Fire Code. The numbers also identify the continued training of staff working in vulnerable occupancies in compliance with the OFM directive.

DATA NOTE: The Citizen Dashboard is in the process of being converted into an Open Data format, linking the Citizen Dashboard with Open Hamilton. During this conversion, the data on the Citizen Dashboard will not be updated quarterly, resulting in some data being out of date. The conversion is underway and is expected to be fully completed by June 2019.
