St. Claude Health Centre Life Safety Systems Installation and Interior Renovations

About the project

This project at the St. Claude Health Centre included the installation of a new automatic sprinkler system, modifications to the existing fire alarm, and cosmetic interior renovations. St Claude Health Centre is a nursing and long-term care home located in St. Claude, Manitoba, which is approximately 75 minutes from the Manitoba capital of Winnipeg.

Guided by the provincial Fire Safety Task Force (FSTF), the new system is part of a 2015 provincial government initiative to ensure all personal care homes and health facilities in Manitoba be equipped with modern fire response systems by January 2026. Formed in early 2014 following a tragic fire at a seniors’ residence in L’Isle-Verte, Que., the FSTF looked at a range of fire and life safety systems and activities. The review looked at fire protection and early warning systems, code enforcement and inspections as well as education and prevention. The task force included representatives from the Office of the Fire Commissioner, Manitoba Building Standards Board, the Manitoba Association of Fire Chiefs, front-line fire services, regional health authorities and several government departments.
