Fire Inspectors conduct inspections of the City’s commercial occupancies (businesses, schools, institutions, apartment buildings, etc.) to ensure that conditions at those properties are in compliance with the International Fire Code. Your annual Fire Safety Inspection, which is required by law, is also a resource available to protect your property and the health and safety of your employees and those who visit your business or occupy your premises.
During the inspection, Fire Inspectors will check your building’s exits, emergency lighting, exit signs, components of fire-resistive separation, access roadways and fire lanes, and testing and maintenance records of fire-safety systems. They will also make sure there is an emergency evacuation plan in place. If the inspectors find any conditions that violate code, they will notify you and, if the conditions cannot be corrected on the spot, will issue a violation notice requesting that the condition(s) be corrected as soon as possible. If you are unsure how to correct the problem, you are always welcome to call and we will help you determine what action steps to take. A later inspection will be scheduled (usually within 30 days) to confirm that the violation has been corrected.
