From the
Editor’s Desk
Our constant objective is to provide you with original articles written by our own industry
people – and written to be of both interest and benefit to you. This issue fulfills that
objective.
Those of you who attended the Ontario Annual Technical Seminar in May of this year will well
remember the very informative (and quite interesting) presentation by Mr. H. Ross Totten,
President & CEO of Totten Group. Ross spoke of the need for our industry players to provide
services for which they have been trained and duly accredited. He described the many factors
involved in assessing needs for liability insurance. Ross has kindly written an article for this
issue, and I am certain it will be of great interest and benefit to all of our readers. We thank
Ross and Totten Group for their support at the Seminar and now in the Journal. For additional
information regarding the Totten Group please refer to their advertisement.
Speaking of the Ontario ATS, we are pleased to carry a report from Mr. John MacDonald,
Ontario Chapter President. He speaks of a highly successful seminar held at a new venue, and
with a different format that included break-out sessions.
We encourage you to support your local Chapter. Why not volunteer to become actively
involved in their activities: consider joining with them to help make a difference in fire/life
safety in your community. The Chapter people are deserving of your support.
This issue contains the names of newly elected CFAA National Board members following
the recent (June) Annual General Meeting. Also included are the election results of those
Chapters that have already conducted their Annual General Meetings.
We encourage you to submit articles, original or pre-published, for possible inclusion in a
future edition of our Journal.
Yours in Fire Safety;
Allen Hodgson, Editor-in-Chief

En direct du
rédacteur en chef
Nous visons sans cesse à vous fournir des articles d’avant-garde rédigés par les gens de notre
industrie, soit des articles intéressants et utiles pour vous. Nous avons atteint cet objectif dans
ce numéro.
Ceux et celles qui ont assisté au Séminaire technique annuel de l’Ontario au mois de mai de
cette année se souviendront de la présentation très informative (et fort intéressante) de M. H.
Ross Totten, président et chef de la direction du Groupe Totten. M. Totten a discuté du besoin
pour les gens de l’industrie de fournir des services pour lesquels ils ont été formés et dûment
certifiés. Il a décrit les nombreux facteurs contribuant à l’évaluation des besoins en matière
d’assurance responsabilité. M. Totten a gracieusement accepté de rédiger un article pour le
présent numéro, et je suis convaincu qu’il sera d’un grand intérêt et très pertinent pour tous
nos lecteurs. Nous remercions M. Totten et le Groupe Totten pour leur appui lors du séminaire
et maintenant dans le cadre de la revue. Pour obtenir des renseignements supplémentaires
concernant le Groupe Totten, veuillez consulter leur publicité.
En parlant du Séminaire technique annuel de l’Ontario, nous sommes heureux de présenter
un rapport de M. John MacDonald, président de la section locale de l’Ontario. Il discute
d’un séminaire ayant connu un très grand succès, organisé à un nouvel endroit, qui offre un
différent format comprenant des ateliers en petits groupes.
Nous vous encourageons à appuyer votre section locale. Pourquoi ne pas offrir de votre temps
afin de vous investir activement dans leurs activités : joignez-vous à eux pour aider à faire
bouger les choses au niveau de la sécurité incendie et de la sécurité des personnes au sein de
votre communauté. Les personnes œuvrant au sein de la section méritent votre soutien.
Ce numéro présente les noms des membres du Conseil national de l’ACAI qui ont été élus
récemment à la suite de l’assemblée générale annuelle (juin). Vous y trouverez également les
résultats d’élections des sections locales qui ont déjà tenu leur assemblée générale annuelle.
Nous vous encourageons à soumettre des articles, originaux ou prépubliés, pour une
publication possible dans un numéro futur de la revue.

PROTECTING
THE PROTECTORS
By H. Ross Totten
FCIP, CCIB - President & CEO
O
n Wednesday, May 23, 2012 I had the pleasure
of speaking to your Ontario Chapter CFAA
Annual Technical Seminar in Mississauga.
Your Publisher, Mr. Allen Hodgson, offered me
the opportunity to present a written version of that
presentation, which follows.
programs and deliver them to consumers through
independent brokers using the “Broker of Choice” of
the individual member. As such, we do not deal direct
with you the insured, but rather through the retail
insurance broker you chose to represent you. Totten
Group acts as the program administrator for a Security
Services program, as well as several other programs,
offered to retail brokers across Canada.
Totten Insurance Group is a specialty insurance
wholesaler that develops niche products and provides
innovative solutions for out-of-the-ordinary lines of
insurance. As an intermediary, we develop insurance
The role your broker plays is very important in the
choice of your insurance program as their function,
on your behalf, includes:
The Health & Safety Management Group is an authorized
provider of the C.F.A.A. “Fire Alarm Technology” program.
We offer this course, coast to coast, in a variery of formats,
including group sessions, public offerings, weekdays,
weekends, or other schedules to meet our client needs.
• Make recommendations regarding the coverages
that are appropriate and required by your specific
operations
The five module program is designed to be completed in full
days consisting of 36 hours per module, leading to
certification as a “Fire Alarm Technician”.
• Make recommendations regarding risk control
and how to manage your exposures
Exemptions for Modules 2, 3 and 4 may be granted by the
C.F.A.A. if the proper qualifications are provided.
• Knowing which insurance companies have
products suited to your operations, giving you the
best coverage for a reasonable premium

• Gathering information regarding your operations,
revenues and generally getting to know and
understand your business
C A NA D IA N F I R E A L A R M A S S O C IAT I O N
• During the term of your policy, reporting of claims
and guidance through the claims procedure
• Review of contracts you are asked to enter into
and negotiating amendments to your insurance
policies that may be required as a result of these
contracts
August 2012
•
Prior to renewal of your annual policy, review your
operations, revenues and assets so as to update
coverages you may require going forward.
Each member of the CFAA has a unique business,
and every member has distinct operations requiring
specialty insurance coverage. These operations require
insurance designed especially for your industry and
not a general policy amended to try to fit your needs.
After a claim is not the time to find our your policy will
not respond to protect your interests.
The following operations require this specialized
insurance coverage:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Alarm installers
Locksmiths
Private investigators
CCTV installers
Security guard services
Telephone answering / paging
Alarm monitoring
Fire extinguishers / CO2 systems
Sprinkler installers
Guard & private investigator training
Manufacturers / distributors of alarms &
protective systems
When discussing your insurance requirements with
your broker you need to be sure that your policy
specifically covers these exposures unique to your
industry. Policies should not be vague on the matter,
nor altered to offer a limited coverage. The policy
should be specific and spell out the fact these coverages
are included. Coverages required includes:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Failure to Perform
Care Custody & Control
Halon Release
Occurrence Form
(as opposed to Claims Made Form)
Incidental Errors & Omissions
Legal Expense Coverage
Time does not permit the explanation of these
terms in this article, but your insurance broker
will explain them, as well as indicate to you where
the coverage is offered in your policy.
The Security Services program specifically designed
by Totten Group not only provides this necessary
protection but in addition offers, under our Liability
coverage:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Primary liability limits up to $10 million
Property damage on a Broad Form basis
Incidental Medical Malpractice
Employee Benefits liability
Non-Owned Automobile – for staff driving
vehicles on company business
Employees all named as Additional Insureds
Medical Payments – up to $10,000 any
one person
Intentional Injury to protect our
personal property
Personal Injury
Halon Release (to full policy limits)
Advertising Liability
Contingent Employers Liability
Tenants Legal Liability – limit of $500,000
Lock & Key Replacement – limit of $25,000
Incidental Design E&O – limit of $250,000
Excess or Umbrella liability above your
Primary policy
Again, all these required coverages may be
explained to you by your broker, but it is important
these are included and this list may be used as
a handy reference to compare to your current
policy.
Legal Expense Coverage is not a mandatory coverage
included on most policies, but rather a relatively new
insurance protection in North America. Long carried
by clients in Europe it is now available in Canada, but
offered only by a relatively few companies. Our policy
carries a limit of $200,000 automatically and provides
practical legal advice and peace of mind.
This coverage does not form part of a basic liability
policy and you receive:
• Free unlimited access to a Legal Advice Helpline
•
to discuss any business related legal matter,
including tax advise
Cost coverage up to $200,000 for all reasonable
costs incurred in pursuing or defending a claim,
including
ºº Lawyers fees
ºº Disbursements for medical reports, expert
witness and court costs
ºº Adverse costs in the event the court finds in
favour of the other party
C A NA D IA N F I R E A L A R M A S S O C IAT I O N

August 2012
Some examples of claims detailed during my
presentation included the following:
• Clerical error of insured resulted in monitoring
•
•
•
service being cancelled – fire occurred. Loss to
barn and livestock $139,000 plus expenses of
$15,000
Fire alarm installed in 1990’s failed in mid 2000’s.
Insured not involved in maintaining or servicing
alarm – fire occurred. Loss paid $0 but $75,000 in
defense costs
Insured hired sub-contractor to install alarm and
they did not test alarm on completion. Break in
and no alarm sounded. Sub-contractor had no
insurance so Insured’s policy responded
Former employee began soliciting clients of
insured. Insured sent out letter saying his work
was inferior. Sued for libel and slander and loss of
business income and Insured policy paid $55,000
plus $10,000 in expenses
and ultimately your insurance premiums. Foreign
operations and failure to use ULC approved parts and
systems will also increase your insurance costs. This
also applies to failure to know and follow regulatory
and legislative protocols from province to province.
It is important to confirm all sub-contractors you
utilize have adequate insurance coverage and limits,
and you obtain proof of this insurance every year, or
even every contract.
This is a very brief overview of your needs in the area
of insurance. Full details should be discussed with
your retail broker. Should they have any questions on
the program offered by Totten Group specifically for
the Security Services they should not hesitate to refer
to our website or contact one of our offices.
For further examples of claims please contact the
author of this article.
Other coverages beyond liability coverage so
necessary to your business includes Property
insurance on your building, contents and equipment
(on and off premises); Business Interruption
insurance and Fidelity coverage confirming the
honesty of your employees.
The pricing of your annual insurance policy will be
based on your experience in each area in which you
provide services; credit for the continuous training of
all your employees; your claims experience based both
on the size of the loss and any frequency of claims;
your annual revenue broken down for each type of
service you provide and whether it is for residential,
commercial or industrial exposures; each of your
operations and whether it includes exposure to fire,
water, burglary or temperature controls, as well as
high risk exposures such as sprinkler installers or
airport security.
A detailed breakdown of each of the classes of
exposure you have will go a long way to be sure your
annual premium reflects your actual exposure. An
incomplete breakdown will result in your over paying
for insurance.
Also your quality control, inspection and testing
of equipment after all installations, your risk
management, will reduce your exposure to losses

PROTÉGER CEUX
ET CELLES QUI
NOUS PROTÈGENT
L
e mercredi 23 mai 2012, j’ai eu le plaisir d’être
conférencier lors du Séminaire technique
annuel de la section locale de l’ACAI en Ontario,
à Mississauga. Votre éditeur, M. Allen Hodgson, m’a
offert l’occasion de publier une version écrite de ma
présentation, que vous trouverez ci-dessous.
Le Groupe Totten est un grossiste en assurance
spécialisée qui développe des produits de niche et fournit
des solutions novatrices pour des gammes d’assurances
qui sortent de l’ordinaire. À titre d’intermédiaire, nous
élaborons des programmes d’assurances et les offrons
aux consommateurs par l’entremise de courtiers
indépendants à l’aide du « courtier privilégié » du
membre individuel. Par conséquent, nous ne faisons
pas affaire directement avec vous, l’assuré, mais
plutôt avec le courtier d’assurance de détail que vous
choisissez pour vous représenter. Le Groupe Totten
agit à titre d’administrateur de programme dans le
cadre d’un programme de Services de sécurité et de
plusieurs autres programmes offerts aux courtiers de
détail partout au Canada.
Le rôle que joue votre courtier est très important dans
le choix de votre programme d’assurance puisque
leurs fonctions, en votre nom, comprennent les aspects
suivants:
Par H. Ross Totten
FCIP, CCIB - President & CEO
•
Formuler des recommandations à propos des
assurances appropriées et requises selon vos
activités précises;
•
Formuler des recommandations à l’égard du
contrôle des risques et de la façon de gérer vos
expositions;
•
Connaître les compagnies d’assurance qui ont
les produits qui conviennent à vos activités, afin
de vous offrir la meilleure assurance à prime
raisonnable;
•
Présenter des réclamations et offrir des conseils
dans le cadre de la procédure de réclamation,
pendant la durée de votre police;
•
Examiner les contrats que vous devez signer et
négocier les modifications à vos polices d’assurance
qui peuvent être exigées en raison de ces contrats;
•
Examiner vos activités, revenus et biens afin
de mettre à jour les assurances dont vous aurez
besoin à l’avenir, et ce, avant le renouvellement de
votre police annuelle.
Chaque membre de l’ACAI exploite une entreprise
unique, et chaque membre offre des activités
distinctes qui requièrent une couverture d’assurance
spécialisée. Ces activités exigent une assurance conçue
spécialement pour votre industrie, contrairement à
une police générale modifiée pour tenter de répondre à
vos besoins. Le moment suivant la présentation d’une
réclamation n’est pas le temps de découvrir que votre
police ne peut réagir pour protéger vos intérêts.
Les activités suivantes nécessitent une couverture
d’assurance spécialisée:
•
• Recueillir des renseignements concernant vos •
activités et vos revenus, et apprendre de manière •

•
Au moment de discuter de vos exigences en matière
d’assurance avec votre courtier, vous devez vous assurer
que votre police couvre précisément les expositions
qui sont uniques à votre industrie. Les polices ne
doivent ni être vagues sur cette question ni modifiées
afin d’offrir une couverture limitée. La police devrait
être spécifique et détailler clairement les assurances
comprises. Les assurances requises comprennent :
•
•
•
•
•
•
Inexécution
Garde, contrôle et responsabilité
Relâchement de halon
Police sur la base de sinistre (à l’opposé de la
police sur la base de réclamation)
Erreurs et omissions accidentelles
Assurance pour frais juridiques
En raison du temps limité, cet article ne peut
préciser ces termes en détail, mais votre courtier
d’assurance pourra vous les expliquer, et même
vous indiquer l’endroit dans votre police où cette
assurance est offerte.
Le programme de Services de sécurité spécialement
conçu par le Groupe Totten offre non seulement la
protection nécessaire, mais également ce qui suit, en
vertu de notre assurance responsabilité :
• Limites de responsabilité principale jusqu’à 10
millions de dollars
• Dommages matériels sur une base de formule
étendue
• Faute médicale accidentelle
• Responsabilité en matière d’avantages sociaux
• Assurance automobile des non-propriétaires –

Erreurs et omissions accidentelles en matière de
conception – limite de 250 000 $
Responsabilité complémentaire ou civile au-delà
de la police principale
À nouveau, votre courtier peut vous expliquer
toutes ces assurances, mais il est important que
celles-ci soient incluses, et la présente liste peut
servir de référence pratique de comparaison pour
votre police actuelle.
L’assurance pour frais juridiques n’est pas une assurance
obligatoire incluse dans la plupart des polices; il s’agit
plutôt d’une protection d’assurance relativement
nouvelle en Amérique du Nord. Longtemps offerte
aux clients en Europe, elle est maintenant disponible
au Canada, mais seulement auprès de certaines
compagnies. Notre police offre une limite automatique
de 200 000 $ et fournit des conseils juridiques pratiques
ainsi que la paix d’esprit.
Cette garantie ne fait pas partie de la police d’assurance
responsabilité de base et vous recevez :
• un accès gratuit illimité à une ligne d’aide pour
•
obtenir des conseils juridiques concernant une
question de nature juridique liée à l’entreprise,
incluant des conseils fiscaux;
une couverture de coût jusqu’à 200 000 $ pour tous
les coûts raisonnables engagés dans la poursuite
ou la défense d’une réclamation, notamment :
ºº les frais professionnels d’avocats;
ºº les coûts associés aux dossiers médicaux, aux
témoins experts et aux frais de cour;
ºº les coûts de la partie opposée dans le cas où la
cour se prononce en faveur de l’autre partie.
Voici des exemples de réclamations qui ont été
détaillées lors ma présentation :
• Une erreur d’écriture de l’assuré entraînant
l’annulation du service de surveillance – un
incendie est survenu. Les pertes au niveau de
Août 2012
•
•
•
l’étable et du bétail s’élèvent à 139 000 $ plus des
dépenses de 15 000 $.
Un système d’alarme incendie installé durant les
années 1990 a fait défaut vers le milieu des années
2000. L’assuré n’était pas investi dans le maintien
et l’entretien du système – un incendie est survenu.
Les pertes payées étaient de 0 $, mais 75 000 $ en
frais de représentation juridique.
L’assuré a embauché un sous-traitant pour installer
un système d’alarme, qui n’a pas procédé à une
mise à l’essai à la fin des travaux. L’établissement a
fait l’objet d’une entrée par effraction sans qu’une
alarme soit déclenchée. Le sous-traitant n’avait pas
d’assurance, donc la police de l’assuré est entrée
en vigueur.
Un ancien employé a commencé à solliciter des
clients de l’assuré. L’assuré a envoyé une lettre
indiquant son mauvais travail. Poursuite judiciaire
pour diffamation verbale ou écrite et perte de
revenus d’affaires; la police de l’assuré a payé 55
000 $ plus 10 000 $ en dépenses.
De plus, votre système de contrôle de la qualité,
l’inspection et la mise à l’essai de l’équipement
après chaque installation et votre gestion des risques
réduiront votre exposition aux pertes et, ultimement,
vos primes d’assurance. Les activités à l’étranger et la
non-utilisation de pièces et de systèmes homologués
ULC augmenteront également vos coûts d’assurance.
Cela s’applique aussi au non-respect des protocoles
réglementaires et législatifs d’une province à l’autre.
Il est important de confirmer que tous les sous-traitants
avec qui vous travaillez possèdent des assurances et
des limites d’assurance adéquates, et d’obtenir une
preuve de cette assurance chaque année, voire à chaque
contrat.
Pour obtenir d’autres exemples de réclamations,
veuillez communiquer avec l’auteur de cet article.
Voilà un bref aperçu de vos besoins en matière
d’assurance. Pour obtenir des renseignements détaillés,
veuillez discuter avec votre courtier de détail. S’ils ont
des questions concernant le programme offert par le
Groupe Totten, particulièrement sur les Services de
sécurité, ils ne devraient pas hésiter à visiter notre site
Web ou à communiquer avec l’un de nos bureaux.
D’autres assurances qui s’ajoutent à l’assurance
responsabilité, nécessaires à votre entreprise, incluent
une assurance des biens de votre bâtiment, du
contenu et de l’équipement (sur les lieux et ailleurs),
une assurance de perte d’exploitation et une garantie
contre les détournements confirmant l’honnêteté de
vos employés.
Merci de nous permettre de protéger ceux et celles qui
nous protègent.
Le coût de votre police d’assurance annuelle sera fondé
sur votre expérience en lien avec les secteurs au sein
desquels vous offrez vos services; les crédits pour
la formation continue de tous vos employés; votre
expérience en matière de sinistre en fonction de l’ampleur
de la perte et de toute fréquence de réclamations; votre
revenu annuel ventilé selon chaque type de service que
vous fournissez et le type d’exposition, soit résidentielle,
commerciale ou industrielle; chacune de vos activités
incluant les risques d’exposition au feu, à l’eau, au vol
ou aux contrôles de température, ainsi que les risques
d’exposition élevés, comme les installateurs de gicleurs
ou la sécurité aéroportuaire.
Une ventilation détaillée de chacune des classes
d’exposition qui vous concerne s’avérera très utile pour
vous assurer que votre prime annuelle reflète votre
exposition réelle. Une ventilation incomplète entraînera
un surplus de paiement sur votre assurance.

be on field observations and operational tests
that the AHJ should ensure are completed
during the Verification of a newly installed
system, or during an Annual Inspection and
Test. We will discuss things that Fire Prevention
Officers should look for when performing regular
building inspections.
Because of the time constraints, the content will
be ‘basic to intermediate’, however the discussion
period can well include more complex and detailed
topics.
WE WATCH YOUR FIRE
ALARM SYSTEM.
YOU WATCH YOUR
KID’S GAME.

A New Direction for the
Ontario Annual Technical Seminar
In its second year of operation, the Ontario chapter of the
CFAA changed the format of the Annual Technical Seminar.
There were topics for every interest and special breakout
sessions geared to specific groups of attendees. The results
were enjoyed by all.
Breakout Sessions
On top of the regular National Topics for the seminar there
were many changes that will be outlined below.
A New Venue
An old idea?
You might say this was an old idea, but, it was new idea for
our organization that worked very well.
Our Mission…
The new venue meant people could stay overnight in
comfort.
The food was wonderful.
There were more rooms that provided for the breakouts.
-Get more field technicians to the event.
-Address Topics and feedback from past sessions.
-Include more industry stakeholders.
-Reach out to the greater community for volunteers.
Building Community
Adult Learning /Training
At the end of the event we achieved our goals and the
feedback tells us that this change was a good thing.
The year was 1979, I was a young man fresh out of my first
couple of years of Electronics when I started in the fire
alarm / communications industry. I recall that our industry
was quite young as well. A technician’s job in those days
was very different than it is today; But, I was a young adult
who needed to learn. School didn’t prepare me for the
learning that I needed. Sounds just like today.
The adult learning method is the subject of many books and
much too expansive to cover in this short article. Whether
you are training technicians or they are learning on their
own, the following things will help you to be more effective.
Adults need to:
-help set the agenda,
-know that the information is directly useful to them,
-have many breaks in the information – avoid lectures,
Keeping in mind our mission and the learning style of our
audience some things had to change.
A Bigger Audience
This year we were promoting our training to the larger
industry community. Our plan was to have property
managers, building officials, engineers, and field service
technicians. Our material would have to be tailored to each
of our audiences.
24
These sessions allowed the session leader to interact with
the audience. As an example, when I covered Best Practices
in Troubleshooting; I could cover very specific material that
technicians could relate to.
C A NA D IA N F I R E A L A R M A S S O C IAT I O N
The fire protection industry has many stakeholders. This
year we were able to provide more time for everyone to
network and learn from each other.
More of the Same
It’s been some time since my first service call; yet the
industry still needs better trained and professional field
technicians.
The Ontario chapter of the CFAA is ready to help promote
better and more frequent training around the province.
Before the end of the year we are planning to have at least
one big training session outside of the GTA and some other
smaller evening sessions in the GTA. To be most effective,
we will need industry input and support.
How can you help?

A Message from Alberta
Chapter's New President:
Mr. Daryll de Waal
I
would like to first of all thank all those that volunteer their precious time despite busy
schedules and family commitments to make the Alberta Chapter alive and well. In
particular, outgoing President Kirk Thordobson (Morrison Hershfield) who completed
two years in the position. He took over from our founding Chapter President Tom VanKosh
(Concept Group); together they have done a great job bringing us to where we are today after
four short years. It is a pleasure to take over from them as the new President of such a great
chapter with fantastic board members and others serving on various committees. Thank you
to everyone for the vote of confidence at the Chapter AGM June 28th. There is no doubt we are
a diverse group, comprising of those from engineering, manufacturers, electrical contractors,
property managers and service providers, together, we have a lot to offer. I believe we will
make a difference in the province, the whole province!
There has been considerable progress recently in bringing the Chapters across the country and
the National organization together, working toward the same goals and understanding and
addressing the unique challenges from the different regions. Thanks especially to National
President Al Hess (Mircom) and National - Chapter Liaison Erick Gagne (SimplexGrinnell)
for the emphasis and progress already in this area.

If something happens on campus
how would they reach us out here?
In critical moments, Sygnal™ mass notification
ensures that every message finds its recipient.
On a college campus, students can be spread over miles: some hunched in front of computer screens, some
gathered in the quad, some talking on their phones. To reach them all, you need more than just the software and
hardware of a mass notification system. You need a plan, and the expertise and service necessary to execute it.
Sygnal lets you reach people inside, outside and at their side for maximum contactibility when it matters most.
With Sygnal, you really can reach them all. www.siemens.ca/buildingtechnologies
