Public consultation on a proposed regulation for public reporting on fire department response times

Bulletin #003/18

February 20, 2018

The Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services is seeking public input on a proposed regulation under the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997 related to new requirements to publicly report on fire department response times.

This new regulation is based on expert advice the ministry received from a Fire Safety Technical Table (the Table). The Table was established in January 2017 to help develop recommendations to the Minister of Community Services and Correctional Services regarding modernization of fire service delivery in Ontario. The Table included representatives from municipalities, firefighter associations and fire departments, including composite and volunteer fire departments.

Public comments must be submitted before the consultation period ends on March 18, 2018

Summaries of the proposed regulation and instructions on how to provide comments are available on the Ontario Regulatory Registry.
