Article Summary: 

The CCI Huronia Winter 2023 Condo Buzz Newsletter highlights the importance of fire safety in 2023, following a tragic increase in fire-related fatalities in 2022. Fire officials are expected to focus heavily on Fire Code enforcement and education to prevent further fatalities. Stricter enforcement of codes, including smoke alarms, CO detectors, smoke control, and integrated testing standards, will lead to more thorough and in-depth inspections. The article advises condo owners and management to be prepared by evaluating their building's fire code compliance, updating the Fire Safety Plan, communicating residents' responsibilities clearly, and ensuring staff and contractor training. Having organized records and documentation is crucial, and any identified deficiencies should be addressed promptly to avoid inspection orders, fines, or court orders.
