OSHAWA – The City of Oshawa is undertaking a Community Risk Assessment and Fire Master Plan. The Community Risk Assessment will identify Oshawa’s needs and circumstances, based on fire risk, and the Fire Master Plan will assess current and future levels of service and programs provided by Oshawa Fire Services.
The Fire Master Plan will be informed by the Community Risk Assessment, legislation and industry best practices. Input from Oshawa Fire Services, the Oshawa Professional Fire Fighters Association and community will be considered in the development of the Plan. The Fire Master Plan is intended to guide the City’s fire services for the next ten years.
The Oshawa community is invited to share their experience with Oshawa Fire Services by:
- completing a feedback form online on Connect Oshawa (www.connectoshawa.ca/FMP);
- completing a feedback form on paper at Service Oshawa (50 Centre St. S.); and/or,
- attending the Community Information Open House between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 21 at the Civic Recreation Complex (99 Thornton Rd. S.) in Meeting Rooms 4 & 5.
Feedback on this phase will be received until 4:00 p.m., Thursday, February 6 and will be considered in the development of the Draft Fire Master Plan. The Draft Fire Master Plan will be available for review and comment in March 2020.
