Business Inspections

To help protect you, your investment, and your customers from the potential effects of fire, Emergency Services is instituting an Engine Company Inspection Program. This program replaces our existing Self-Inspection Program.

Engine Company Inspection Program

Firefighters from our organization will visit your business at least once per year to ensure compliance with fire and life safety codes. 

Inspections

These inspections will provide you an opportunity to meet your community firefighters while maintaining your business in a safe condition. The program provides firefighters an opportunity to familiarize themselves with your building and business processes making them more effective should they be called to extinguish a fire in your occupancy. 

Data Collection

Firefighters will also collect data on your business providing our organization an opportunity to better serve your needs.

Focus Items of Inspections

Firefighters will focus on the following items during their inspections:

  • Building access
  • Building egress (exiting)
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Fire hazard control permits
  • Fire protection system installations and maintenance
  • Fire separations
  • General housekeeping
  • Storage
