We maintain comprehensive data on fires, fire-related injuries and deaths, explosions and other emergency responses made by Ontario's fire departments. All Ontario fire departments are responsible for recording data on every emergency response they make and submitting it to us in the manner directed by the Fire Marshal. This ensures that data is consistent, timely and representative of the entire province of Ontario.

Our Data, Applications and Technical Support team analyzes and transforms the collected data into valuable information that is used in the development of fire prevention and public education programs, community risk assessments, and legislation that helps protect persons, property and the environment.
