The Fire Prevention Bureau Inspections Office conducts inspections on new building construction, tenant finishes, fire alarm systems and fire suppression system installations. The office also handles complaints from citizens and provides assistance to fire suppression crews when the crew comes across a technical code issue they are unable to address. Inspections are conducted in the following areas:
- Kitchen Hood Suppression Systems
- DHR Inspections
- Business License Approval
- Knox Box Inspections
- Courtesy Inspections
- Occupant Load Calculations
During the construction or renovation process the fire department requires inspections to ensure conformity to the approved plans and compliance to all applicable codes and ordinances. A fire department inspector conducts an on-site inspection at least twice: at the 80 percent stage and then at 100 percent completion of the project. When applicable, an inspector will require an inspection of the fire sprinkler system. Normally, we will perform an inspection the day following the request. If a project fails an inspection, we will schedule another time to re-inspect. Once a project passes the final inspection, a certificate of occupancy is issued.
Our offices are located next door to Marietta City Hall on the second floor of Fire Station 51, 112 Haynes Street. For plan review questions, contact Lt. Jason Garner at 770-794-5459.
