Fire Safety for Tents/Shelter Form

All Tents erected for the sheltering of occupants (people) are considered a shelter or structure, and therefore meet the definition of building and the associated fire code requirements for occupancy under the Ontario Fire Code. Tents are also subject to the Ontario Building Code requirements.

All tents, tarpaulin, decorative materials and films used in conjunction with the tent must meet CAN/ULC-S 109 Flame Resistant Fabrics and Films, or NFPA 701 Fire Test for Flame Propagation of Textiles and Films. Proof of this must be shown with a Certificate of Flame Resistance tag on the structure.

Please upload site plan below.

*Note; Site Plan must include the size of the event, number of tents, locations of tents (including the placement in respect to other building structures or tents), use of tent, size and capacity of tents. Map images can be found in Appendix D to assit you with the creation of this plan.


Allowed extensions pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, jpg, jpeg, gif, png, tif
