Smoke Alarms should be tested every month using the test button to ensure they are functioning properly.
Batteries need to be changed in battery-operated smoke alarms once a year.
Changing the battery on the same day each year i.e. daylight savings time will make it easier to remember.
It is law in Ontario that every house have a working smoke alarm installed on each level.
Once a year, fire extinguishers need to be inspected and tagged by a qualified fire extinguisher service technician to ensure that the pressure is within the proper range, the powder hasn't become compressed and that the extinguisher is not due for either 6-year maintenance or hydrostatic testing of the cylinder.
Privately-owned Fire Hydrants in the City of Ottawa are painted red. The colour of the top cap is dependent upon the measured rate of water flow from the hydrant when it is flow-tested. Owners of private Fire Hydrants are required by Ontario Fire Code regulations to have their hydrants inspected and flow-tested every year.
Fire Hydrants owned and maintained by the City of Ottawa are painted yellow.
It is an Ontario Fire Code requirement that all Fire Hoses be inspected and re-racked by a qualified service technician every year.
