Project Location: Toronto, Ontario
As a result of issues which arose during the ice storm of December 2013, the Toronto District School Board has undertaken the construction of a new Emergency Management and Call Centre intended to improve communications and coordination amongst TDSB staff, other municipal agencies, emergency services and the general public. In addition, the Board operates an in-house ULC Listed Signal Receiving Centre which monitors fire alarm and security systems at all TDSB facilities for the purpose of alerting municipal emergency services of a life safety event at a TDSB-owned facility.
NA Engineering Associates Inc. has been retained to design all of the fire protection systems for this new facility, including detection and suppression systems and an associated emergency power generator. In addition, NA Engineering Associates Inc. has been retained to design all of the systems necessary to support having this facility become the new ULC Listed Signal Receiving Centre for all TDSB fire alarm and security systems. This scope includes all of the Central Station hardware, as well as all of the ancillary systems and facility architecture necessary to support ULC Certification under ULC-S561.
