The South-West Oxford Fire Department Fire Safety Inspection Program is intended to reduce the likelihood of fire occurrences and the impact of fire should one occur. A fire inspection identifies if a property owner is maintaining a fire safe property and reinforces fire safe behaviours, not just identifies infractions of the Ontario Fire Code. Fire safety inspections are conducted by the Fire Chief in one of three ways: REQUEST, ROUTINE, or COMPLAINT.
Request Inspection: If a person would like to have a fire safety inspection conducted at a property he/she owns, they can request this in writing to the Fire Chief. The letter must state the owners name, property address, and reason for inspection.
To request and inspection, complete the form found here.
Routine Inspection: These inspections include targeted properties that house vulnerable sector residents, require licensing or have a history of non-compliance.
Complaint Inspection: If a member of the public has reason to believe that a property within the Township of South-West Oxford does not comply with the Ontario Fire Code or there are fire hazards at a property, they may file a complaint with the Fire Chief.
