The City of Winnipeg will begin enforcing a new Fire Prevention Bylaw starting July 26, 2017. New restrictions are being placed on the use of storage lockers in parking garages. Storage units that were part of a building original design and part of the construction permitting process will be considered approved and acceptable. All other units will only be permitted provided a stamped engineers report confirming that the storage units meet all the requirement under the new bylaw is presented to the Fire Prevention office.
For more information, please read the full information circular from the Winnipeg Fire Department.
