Stephen Foster, SVP Retirement
hosts government media conference.
Safety in our communities is of
the utmost importance. That’s
why Revera invested more than
$55 million to ensure all of our
retirement and long-term care
communities were equipped
with full sprinkler systems by the
end of 2012.
And our efforts have not gone
unnoticed. Revera received an
award for leadership in fire safety
from the Canadian Automated
Sprinkler Association. And for
their involvement with our
project, Aon Fire Protection
earned an Engineering Project
of the Year Award from the
Professional Engineers of
Ontario. We’re proud of this
recognition, and know that
when it comes to fire safety,
early detection can make all
the difference.
In addition to sprinklers, we
have also installed smoke
detectors, carbon monoxide
detectors and emergency
response systems beyond
what government legislation has
mandated. In Ontario, automatic
sprinklers will be mandatory in
licensed retirement homes by
2019
and long term care homes
by 2025. Our people are trained
regularly in emergency response
procedures, and we work closely
with local fire departments to
ensure our fire safety plans
are up to date and in line with
provincial fire safety regulations.
With all these steps, you can be
assured that safety comes first at
every Revera community.
