Ryan Duggan
Director Fire & Life Safety
City of Toronto

Ryan Duggan is the Director of Fire and Life Safety for The City of Toronto. Ryan is developing a comprehensive Fire and Life Safety Program Office that consolidates all Fire and Life Safety matters for 65 million square feet of City owned building, spaces and critical infrastructure. Prior to joining the City in mid-2019, Ryan was the Manager of Fire Safety at the Toronto Transit Commission for over 13 years where he implemented an industry leading fire safety program that provides oversight of all fire protection maintenance, code compliance and fire safety training for both employees and Toronto Fire Service related to firefighting in transit systems. Ryan is a graduate from the Fire Protection Engineering Technology program at Seneca College and lives in Dundas, Ontario.


Following the Auditor General's report 'Raising the Alarm' in July 2018, the City of Toronto has undertaken a comprehensive audit of 60+ Fire Protection contractors who were conducing Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Fire and Life Safety systems throughout City owned and operated properties. The results ranged from satisfactory to outright fraud and are indicative of an unregulated fire and life safety industry. How can the largest property owner in Ontario adequately protect building occupants, assets and meet compliance requirements while avoiding the potholes of an unregulated fire protection service industry?
