Solutions for Residential Occupancies

Each year, residential fires account for the majority of fire-related deaths and injuries in Canada and North America, as well as a tremendous cost to individuals and society.


Taking Care to Prevent Disaster

Residential buildings come in many forms—single family dwellings, university dormitories, multi-floor apartment buildings, hotels and motels, and more—each of which presents fire safety challenges. A fire in a residential building can be devastating—particularly in larger, older structures that might have used combustible materials and that might lack adequate exits.

To reduce the impact of fires and to increase safety for occupants, care must be taken to apply proper construction and fire safety measures.


We offer a full range of fire and life safety services for residential occupancies—to learn more, please download our Solutions for Residential Occupancies infosheet.
