The home has a policy that prohibits the use of extension cords and “octopus” electrical plugs. Power bars are an acceptable alternative. The home’s Emergency Plan is tested on a regular basis. Fire drills are conducted each month for the safety of residents and staff. Fire exits are clearly indicated.
Semi-annual fire inspections are conducted by the City of Cornwall Fire Department. Annual inspections from the Eastern Ontario Health Unit are also conducted to ensure compliance with applicable legislation. In addition the Eastern Ontario Health Unit inspects the dietary services quarterly.
