Day to day workings of many businesses utilize materials that may be hazardous to either the environment or to emergency responders. If your business uses, stores or handles hazardous substances, please let us know. Our Hazardous Materials specialists will then be able to advise responding crews of which properties may pose a threat due to materials on site. It also enables them to provide a pre-plan of the property and discuss any suppression challenges that may arise before a fire happens.

In August 2008, the Government of Ontario embarked on a review of the storage, handling, location and transportation of propane. Ontario Regulation 211/01 Propane Storage and Handling, as amended, requires propane license holders to prepare and implement Risk and Safety Management Plans (RSMPs). The amendment (O.Reg 440/08) applies to new or modified facilities effective January 1, 2010, and to all existing operators at the time of license renewal after December 31, 2010.
