Commercial Fire Inspections

All commercial properties are inspected annually or prior to opening a new business for compliance with the International Fire Code. Inspections are free of charge. As part of the inspection process, all businesses are required to maintain fire extinguishers, sprinkler systems, kitchen hoods/Ansul systems and backflow prevention devices by having annual inspections and certifications. Inspection reports must be submitted to the Building Inspections Department. Property owners are required to make any necessary repairs to meet fire and life safety code requirements.
