The requirements for building owners or business owners to prepare a fire safety plan for their particular building or premises first appeared 36 years ago in Ontario in 1980 with the introduction of the Ontario Fire Code. The first fire safety planning guideline was introduced in 1983 by the Office of the Fire Marshal. With the advent of technology and the internet, many so-called fire safety planning templates appeared on the world-wide web. Some local fire departments chose to offer a service in assisting the public to comply with the Fire Code by completing a fill-in-the-blank type fire safety plan for a fee. Some business entrepreneurs have created computer software that claimed to be able to automatically generate a fire safety plan for the users with a few key stokes.

The instructor Andrew Wong attempts to bring home the underlying reasons for having a fire safety plan in the first place, and to share with participants the best practice and proven strategies towards preparing a site-specific fire safety plan for any occupancy.
