  REPORT OF THE FIRE MARSHAL
Office of the Fire Marshal,
Vancouver, B.C., June 26, 1974.
The Honourable Alex. Barrett Macdonald, Q.C,
Attorney-General, Victoria, B.C.
Sir: I beg to submit the 52nd Annual Report of the Fire Marshal for the year
ended December 31, 1973.
In the year 1973 there was a total of 7,613 (8,120)* fires reported with a loss
of $45,693,116 ($37,389,116). It is with regret that I have to report that 116
(100) persons died in fires in 1973. These included 57 (46) men, 29 (24) women,
and 30 (30) children.
Careless use of smoking materials continues to be the greatest single cause of
deaths by fire and the largest number of fire deaths occurred in dwellings.
Since January 1, 1972, through the co-operation of the Data Processing
Division we are able to utilize the Uniform Fire Reporting System and for the first
time this Report provides a comparison between each of the incidents with those
of the preceding year.
While the number of fires dropped slightly, the annual dollar loss has increased
to the highest total this Province has suffered. This reflection is probably due to
increased replacement values.
Fire Advisory Service
In considering the suggestion of the Educational Committee of the British
Columbia Fire Chiefs Association, we have now provided for a Fire Service Training
Co-ordinator. The position has not yet been filled but a requisition has been made
to the Public Service Commission and an appointment will be made in due course.
The role of the Training Co-ordinator will be to correlate fire service training
with existing Provincial educational facilities. Such training will be directed particularly to the Fire Officer level. Training in this field will be most beneficial to the
Fire Service generally.
The Fire Service have also strongly supported our recommendations on the
establishment of regional offices which would provide a liaison service to those
regional districts, municipalities, and unorganized areas which are not adjacent to
the Lower Mainland.
The Certification and Acceptance Programme for automobile fire-fighting
apparatus continues to provide an important facility to municipalities which require
this service in the purchase of such apparatus.
In this matter of fire service education we serve on the Advisory Councils of
local regional colleges and again we anticipate that this subject will be high on the
list of priorities for the forthcoming year.
Our Staff Inspectors made 942 (751) inspections pursuant to the Fire Marshal
Act and regulations, while 64,642 (63,940) were made by Local Assistants to the
Fire Marshal. A total of 1,050 (888) Fire Marshal orders was issued and 48 (13)
appeals were heard and determined.
* Total for previous year.
 C 8 BRITISH COLUMBIA
British Columbia Emergency Fire Defence Plan
There has been a minimum of training activity in the British Columbia
Emergency Fire Defence Plan; however, we do maintain a close working programme
with the Canadian Forces.
Municipalities continue to take advantage of the availability of fire pumpers
(which have been assigned to zones by this office) for training and emergency
purposes.
We also maintain a reciprocal working arrangement with the provinces and
states of the Pacific Northwest. The Fire Marshals of British Columbia and States
of Washington, Alaska, and Oregon with whom we are in communication on matters
of mutual concern in the field of fire prevention and fire protection. By virtue of a
reciprocal Aid Agreement, hose thread-adapters are being maintained at all border-
crossing points between British Columbia and Washington, Idaho, and Montana in
the event that circumstances may require British Columbia Fire Service operations
in any one of those states or vice versa.
Fire Investigation Service
During the year a total of 951 (756) fires was fully investigated. These included fires where there were loss of life, major damage, violations of regulations
or by-laws enacted for the prevention of fires, or for the protection of life and
property against fire, or the fires appeared to be of suspicious origin.
Our Staff Inspectors were involved in 241 (276) investigations. Arising out
of these investigations, 106 (126) persons were charged with fire crimes under the
Criminal Code of Canada. Altogether 108 charges (138) were laid and, of these,
23 (48) resulted in convictions, 2 (5) were dismissed, 77 (69) are pending, and
the remainder dealt with otherwise.
By special arrangement, the Fire Marshal is the focal point within the Province
for the collecting and reporting of selected fire-crime statistics to Statistics Canada,
and these are included in Appendix A.
Fire Service Training
Our Travelling Instructional Units conducted Courses in fire-fighting at 121
(72)  Fire Departments and some  1,260 fire-fighters received certificates, and
assisted on special assignments involving 421 field inspections.    Altogether 412
training sessions were conducted with a total of 64,997 miles travelled.
Public Information Services
The Fire Service are anxious that we expand our Film Library and such expansion will require a careful increase in the expenditure estimates for the next
current year. We also participate in displays, give lectures, and issue directives on
fire safety as is possible.
The bulletin In-Fire-Mation has been well accepted. Four issues were made
to our Local Assistants to the Fire Marshal, other interested persons, and the media.
Public Safety
We continue to be extremely busy in the matter of public safety. This year,
1,275 (1,184) plans and specifications were processed by our Engineering Section.
Such plans and specifications are scrutinized for compliance with applicable regulations or are processed at the request of our Local Assistant to the Fire Marshal in
whose jurisdiction the building or installation is to be made.
 REPORT OF THE FIRE MARSHAL, 1973 C 9
This year we were again very much involved with the installation of compressed-
gas systems. We issued 9,621 (10,377) Fire Marshal Approval Labels in servicing
305 (278) dealer and manufacturer applicants, and 223 (296) units were inspected
and tested.
In addition to those inspections made by the Local Assistant to the Fire
Marshal, my staff made 251 inspections of industrial and commercial installations,
17 inspections of tank delivery trucks and trailers, 19 inspections of propane bulk-
storage plants, 7 instructional courses were held for Local Assistant Fire Marshals
and Royal Canadian Mounted Police members, 12 investigations were conducted
pertaining to gas fires or explosions, and as well we are considering the adoption
of the Canadian Standard Association Standard B149.2 as an Installation Code for
Propane Burning Appliances and Equipment.
Moving-picture projectionist examinations, held pursuant to the Fire Marshal
Act and regulations, were attended by 16 (11) applicants, and as a result 6 (6)
first-class, 4 (2) second-class, and 4 (3) third-class projectionist licences were
issued.
In the past year 144 rest homes and homes for the mentally retarded were
inspected in conjunction with local authorities along with 163 day care, family day
care, and play schools, with a total of 307 inspections.
The Department of Energy, Mines and Resources, with the assistance of the
Fire Marshal Office have conducted Fireworks Supervisor Courses in six locations
throughout the Province. Because of revisions to the Canada Explosives Act, such
training is necessary for persons wishing to purchase and set off exhibition-type
fireworks displays.
At the present time we have under consideration the adoption of the Canadian
Standards Association Standard B139 Installation Code for Oil Burning Equipment
as a Provincial Oil Burner Regulation.
Two Orientation Courses for Local Assistants were held in the Fire Marshal
Office during the year where some 61 persons were instructed. These courses are
very informative and have proved to be most helpful to Local Assistants in carrying
out their duties under the Fire Marshal Act and regulations. It also presents them
with the opportunity to discuss with the Staff any problems they may have in the
Fire Prevention and Fire Protection fields.
During 1973 we were pleased to have had as guests Fire Marshal W. A.
Penttila, Montana, and Rex Jordan, Assistant to the Inspector of Insurance, and
State Fire Marshal for the State of Washington.
Statistical information is given each year to the Dominion Fire Commissioner,
Fire Marshals, and Fire Commissioners across Canada and the United States,
insurance companies, adjusters, and libraries, to the Local Assistants to the Fire
Marshal, and others.
For tabulating purposes, detailed records of all large-loss and multiple-death
fires are sent to the National Fire Protection Association for inclusion in fire-loss
surveys.
I would like to thank the members of the various fire and police departments,
the British Columbia Research Council, the National Harbours Board, Civil Defence
Organization, and my Staff for excellent co-operation.
I have the honour to be,
Sir,
Your obedient servant,
