Fire Safety at Delta Health Care Facilities

Jan 31, 2014

At the January 27, 2014 Regular Meeting, Mayor Lois E. Jackson read a letter from Delta Fire and Emergency Services outlining their research on sprinkler systems and fire safety plans at Delta health care facilities. The letter confirms that each of the 17 care facilities in Delta is equipped with sprinkler systems that require annual servicing by an accredited company.

Each health care facility in Delta also has a mandatory Fire Safety Plan, which must be made available to all supervisory personnel and practiced through quarterly drills, in order to familiarize personnel and patients with evacuation procedures.

For more information on fire safety at health care facilities in the municipality of Delta, please view the letter from the Deputy Fire Chief dated January 24, 2014 (171 KB), or contact the Delta Fire Department by telephone at 604-946-8541.
