Smoke Alarm /Fire Bell Testing

Fire Safety includes government mandated annual testing of smoke detectors inside units.  Residents have a legal obligation to comply with allowing the Fire Safety Technicians access to their Units.  Non-compliant Homeowners will be fined and Unit access will be enforced.  Homeowners are responsible for their tenants Fire Alarm bell testing is done on the last Tuesday of every month.  In order to maintain the system properly alarms will sound for short periods of time.  On a test day, if the alarm sounds for longer than 2 minutes, then it is no longer part of testing and residents must evacuate the building via the shortest route possible.

 

In Case Of Evacuation

If the alarm sounds and it is not a scheduled test, consider it an emergency and evacuate the building. Always check your door for heat or gas to ensure that it is safe to open and exit. Exit via the closest opening to the outdoors.  DO NOT travel down to the garage Parkade.  It is not the closest exit.  DO NOT use the elevators under any circumstances.  Remember, the first and safest exit is the best exit.

 

Where To Go??

Once out of the building move a safe distance away from the building to a point where emergency services can find you. Buildings 1 & 2 should travel on Brown Road to Ingram, right on Ingram to the Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre parking lot. Buildings 3 & 4 should travel down Old Okanagan Hwy to Johnson Bentley as well.  The MUSTER STATION for all RESIDENTS is Johnson Bentley Community Pool.  

 

DO NOT GO BACK INSIDE - EVEN IF SOMEONE IS MISSING!  Going back into a burning or unstable building can create a second victim.  If someone is trapped inside, rescuers will need to find one person.  If you go back inside, they'll need to find two. Once out, stay out!
