Fire Safety Plan

F.A.S.T. Rescue is now offering an Accredited Online Fire Safety Online Certification program!  This course is designed to help protect the public and responding firefighters.  Most building owners in Ontario is required to have a Fire Safety Plan, approved and implemented at their building.  All “Supervisory” staff of that building has to be trained on how to implement the Fire Safety Plan, and understand their own roles and responsibilities under that plan – before being given any responsibilities at the building.  The training in this program allows everyone to fully understand their responsibilities included in section 2.8 of the Ontario Fire Code.

When a building fire occurs, if you stick to the fire safety plan, firefighters who arrive on the scene will have easy access to the building, and safely be able to put out the fire. When purchasing the course, you can select 1 course out of the 3 available:

For commercial buildings this course covers:

November is CPR Month – be the somebody who saves a life

November is CPR Month – be the somebody who saves a life

This November, be the somebody who saves a life - CPR Month

If you witnessed a family member in cardiac arrest, would you know what to do?

Although the majority of Canadians say they would recognize the signs if someone were experiencing a heart attack or a cardiac emergency, fewer than half say they have the skills to help in this common and life-threatening emergency.

November is CPR Month and the Canadian Red Cross and F.A.S.T. Rescue challenges everyone to get the training they need to help save a life. Effective bystander CPR, when used with an AED and administered immediately following cardiac arrest, can double a person’s chance of survival.

More than 50,000 Canadians die of heart disease every year.

Nearly 60 percent of Canadians who have had to perform first aid did so to help a family member.

Canadians who have taken a first aid course are considerably more confident in their skills to be able to help someone experiencing a medical emergency.

Red Cross CPR courses include training on the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs): how to assess a person in cardiac arrest, determine whether defibrillation (a shock to the heart to restore normal beating) should be performed, and use an AED unit to deliver a shock if required.

The Red Cross is the only national training agency to include AED training as a mandatory component in all our programs.
