Inspections

All commercial properties are inspected annually. Some commercial occupancies like restaurants, hotels and schools are inspected more frequently. The purpose of a fire inspection is to educate occupancy owners and managers on fire and life safety. Unsafe and non-compliant conditions identified upon inspection will be noted on an official inspection form that is shared with the owner / occupant. Follow-up inspections are scheduled to ensure unsafe and non-compliant conditions are mitigated. The goal is to assist property owners with maintaining safe and code compliant space for all building occupants.
