Fire prevention is achieved by public education and inspection. Trained professional Fire Department inspectors will inspect business occupancies to identify hazards and applicable fire code violations. The inspector will explain the fire code violation to the business owner or occupant in a courteous manner and establish an action plan for correction.
Re-inspections will be scheduled to determine the level of compliance. Inspectors will also assist the Building Department and individual property owners in complying with applicable fire codes by reviewing building plans, automatic fire suppression design and public water works. Inspectors will monitor fire hydrant installations and maintenance.
Our goal is to establish a positive relationship with the business community so they view fire prevention inspections as a welcomed service rather than an infringement.
