A Fire Safety Plan (FSP) is a document required by Section 2.8 of the Ontario Fire Code (OFC), designed by the building owner or retained specialist, to identify the actions that should be taken by the occupants and building management in the event of a fire or other emergency situation.

Each Fire Safety Plan required by the OFC shall be reviewed and approved by the local fire department's Chief Fire Official.

After approval process, the approved fire safety plan shall be available on site for the fire department officers. In most cases the FSPs are stored in FSP boxes located close to the main entrance. 

Usually, details about the FSP boxes and their location are included in local bylaws. 

The location of the FSP box must be included in a fire safety plan and approved by the Chief Fire Official.
