Fire Master Plan

The City of Oshawa is undertaking a Community Risk Assessment and Fire Master Plan. The Community Risk Assessment will identify Oshawa’s needs and circumstances, based on fire risk, and the Fire Master Plan will assess current and future levels of service and programs provided by Oshawa Fire Services.

The Fire Master Plan will be informed by the Community Risk Assessment, legislation and industry best practices. Input from Oshawa Fire Services, the Oshawa Professional Fire Fighters Association and community will be considered in the development of the Plan. The Fire Master Plan is intended to guide the City’s fire services for the next ten years.

The Fire Master Plan will aim to optimize the use of the Three Lines of Defence model to support fire risk reduction and mitigation. The three lines of defence are:

  1. Public Education and Prevention;
  2. Fire Safety Standards and Code Enforcement; and,
  3. Emergency Response.
