County of Brant, ON – As a result of a routine request for inspection by the County of Brant Fire Department, a landlord has been charged for failing to install smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms where required.

“It is the landlord’s responsibility to install and maintain smoke and CO alarms. Not having working smoke and CO alarms to give people the extra warning time, in the event of an emergency, is inexcusable and will not be tolerated,” said Fire Chief Michael Seth. “Working smoke and CO alarms, along with a practiced escape plan, are essential to ensure people are able to survive a fire.”

Landlords have an obligation to ensure the fire safety equipment for their tenants is in place and working. Tenants must report any problems with their smoke or CO alarms to their landlord. Failure of a tenant to report these problems is also a violation of the Fire Code.

The Ontario Fire Code requires working smoke alarms on every level and working CO alarms outside of all sleeping areas. All alarms must be replaced according to the manufacturer’s recommendation including hardwired smoke alarms.

For more information, please contact the County of Brant Fire Department at 519.442.4500.
