Description

In Canada on average approximately 304 people die each year due to fire with another 2,547 approximate injuries.  These fires cost Canadians approximately $1,489,012,263 each year, with an average of 53,590 dollar-loss fires reported annually.

All fires are investigated to determine their cause and to help prevent similar occurrences. Negligence in building maintenance and fire protection equipment are often exposed, leaving the owner responsible and the insurance company refusing to pay on a claim. A fire will increase your insurance rates and failure to maintain fire protection equipment is a violation of the Fire Code and could lead to thousands of dollars in fines and up to a year in jail! It pays to be fire safe!

This book is a general introduction to fire safety and emergency procedures aiming to educate people about what to do in a fire situation. Reading this book will help you protect yourself, your fellow workers and your family.
