Port Colborne Fire Code Violation Conviction

On March 15, 2017, the owners of 346 Davis Street were convicted in provincial Offences Court for failing to comply with the Ontario Fire Code and were fined $7,500 in accordance with the provisions of the Fire Protection and Prevention Act.

On December 17, 2016, Port Colborne Fire and Emergency Services responded to a complaint of no smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in a residential unit. During the following investigation of the four-plex, multiple infractions with the requirements of the Ontario Fire Code were found.

Mayor Maloney commended Port Colborne Fire and Emergency Services for their diligence in protecting citizens residing in these residences, “The safety of our residents is of the utmost importance. Our Fire Department will continue to inspect and enforce the laws with respect to fire safety.”

At the time of this press release, the property at 346 Davis Street is in compliance.

Port Colborne’s Fire Chief reminds all residents that smoke alarms are mandatory under the law and any residence with a fuel fired appliance or attached garage requires a carbon monoxide alarm.
