What does a business inspection consist of?

Business fire safety inspections are conducted on annual and semi-annual basis and are either scheduled by appointment or they are unannounced. Fire Inspectors partner with business owners and property managers to ensure the building is safe to occupy and is compliant with current fire code.  We check exit lights, emergency lighting, fire alarms, fire sprinkler systems, fire protection systems, and fire extinguishers. Fire inspectors also check for emergency egress exits and life safety concerns.    Each occupancy receives a thorough fire inspection report with all discrepancies noted at the time of inspection.  Fire Inspectors discuss the findings with the occupant and answer any questions regarding the inspection.   Follow-up fire inspections are scheduled to allow ample time to resolve all non-compliant findings.  There is no charge for fire safety inspections.  For more information, contact the Fire Marshal at 830-248-1512 or 830-249-3644.  You can send an email to [email protected].
