Ryan Duggan
Manager of Fire Safety & Emergency Planning
Toronto Transit Commission

Ryan Duggan has been with the TTC since 2007. Prior to joining the TTC, he was with Marsh Canada as a Property Risk Consultant. Ryan recently submitted a white paper on transit yard fire suppression that will be published in the fall. In his spare time, he teaches in the Fire Protection Engineering program at Seneca.


Each day the TTC moves over 1.7 million people throughout the City of Toronto with a 3 mode network. Maintaining fire safety throughout the subway system and 66 surface properties is a monumental task, especially when over 800,000 people per day travel in the subway with a limited means of egress. In this presentation, our speaker will outline the methods, systems and infrastructure in place to ensure TTC’s customers make it safely to their destination and review lessons learned from the last 3 major fires at TTC (Christie Station, Greenwood Wye & Old Mill Station).
