Fire Safety Plans

The Alberta Fire Code requires Fire Safety Plans (FSP’s) for buildings under construction and for existing facilities under certain conditions. The information and links below are intended to assist Owners and Builders in meeting Fire Code compliance.

FSP1 - Housing and Small Buildings Fire Safety Plan 

For detached housing and buildings under construction, less than 600 m2, and 3 storeys or less in height, use the Housing and Small Building Fire Safety Plan (FSP1). 

Submit the completed document to Fireadmin@stalbert.ca.

FSP2 - Fire Safety Plan for Buildings Under Construction

For buildings under construction, greater than 3 storeys or greater than 600 m2, use the general Fire Safety Plan for Buildings Under Construction (FSP2). In addition to completing the plan, submit an accurate and legible sketch of the site with the following noted:

  • Fire access routes
  • Fire Department Connection
  • Hydrants
  • Exits/Egress
  • Muster Points
  • Buildings Outline

Submit the completed document to Fireadmin@stalbert.ca.

FSP3 -General Fire Safety Plan for Buildings in Use

Fire Safety Plans are required by the Fire Code in existing facilities which;

  • Have a fire alarm system
  • Are considered assembly use or have a care or treatment occupancy,
  • Include storage facilities for materials covered under Part 3 of the Fire Code, including dangerous goods,
  • Include areas where flammable and combustible liquids are stored or handled, or,
  • Areas where hazardous processes or operations occur.

A Fire Safety Plan is designed by the building owner in co-operation with the Fire Department to identify the actions that should be taken by the occupants and building management in the event of a fire or similar emergency. Fire protection systems are also identified and maintenance requirements are noted and documentation maintained. 

Under the Safety Codes Act, owners or other persons responsible for a property, process, or thing, are required to ensure that all regulations and requirements of the Act are met. The document below lists the fire safety equipment maintenance requirements found in the Alberta Fire Code for all existing buildings.  It may be used to evaluate the maintenance and documentation required in a Fire Safety Plan.
