Ontario fire chiefs want sprinklers for all nursing homes

The Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs has run several mock evacuations at nursing homes throughout the province in recent weeks, and the organization reports that most failed, according to the Toronto Star.

The group is pushing province legislators to make sprinkler systems mandatory in all senior centers, and also want better training for staff members in nursing homes.

"We have a legal and moral responsibility to make sure the residents are safe," Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs spokesperson Jim Jessop told the news source.

One option for seniors moving into nursing homes to consider is the use of a self storage facility. This will allow the senior to hang onto his or her personal items without taking up space in their new home. Jiffy Self Storage's facilities are also built with reinforced concrete and the storage lockers have sprinklers installed, ensuring the items will remain safe in case of a fire.

Jiffy Self Storage, a leader in Toronto storage solutions, is currently running a contest on their website for a free iPad 3. Visitors to the site simply need to match a few Canadian landmarks and they'll be entered to win the iPad or one of several other prizes.
