FIRE SAFETY PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT AND MAKE YOUR BUILDING A SAFER PLACE. 905.680.RENT THINK SAFE YOUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON IT Fires result in over one hundred deaths in Ontario each year. Fire prevention should be the number one  safety concern for all landlords since the majority of these deaths occur in residential fires. Ultimate  attention and the highest commitment to fire safety must be maintained at all times in order to provide a  safer living environment for tenants, protect the landlords’ investment and shield them from criminal  charges or incarceration due to negligence or death. Boncore Management assists landlords in addressing fire hazard issues and maintaining fire safety in  their buildings. We work closely with staff, superintendents, qualified fire technicians and consultants to  ensure buildings meet municipal safety standards and comply with the fire code set by the Ontario Fire  Marshal’s Office. Many municipalities in the Niagara Region follow the Ontario Fire Marshal’s recommendations to enforce  a zero tolerance policy towards violations. In many cases landlords are immediately charged for fire code  deficiencies without warning or time to rectify problems. Many of these violations are discovered in  random inspections by the local fire department without notice to the landlord. FINES AND PENALTIES  An individual convicted of three fire code offences faces a penalty of up to $ 20,000.00 and or one year  imprisonment.  In the case of contravention of the fire code there is a penalty of up to $ 50,000.00 or imprisonment of up to one year for an individual; Penalties for corporations are set at a hire rate.
