Unlike most fire services, Toronto firefighters speeding to a call have no access to critical building information like the location of water, firefighting equipment or hazardous materials, a secret report says.
The report contains five pages of recommendations that would make the city safer. But fire department officials will not release the key results of the sweeping review.
Toronto Fire Chief Bill Stewart is away and could not be reached for comment. An assistant emailed some responses to questions yesterday, stating that “the findings of this review will assist us with continual improvements.”
