About Inspections

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:

Inspection Details

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% stage and then at 100% 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.

Inspections are performed on an AM (9 AM - 12 PM)  and PM (1 PM - 5 PM) schedule. Please be available throughout the allotted time for an inspector to arrive at your location.
