These inspectors review new construction projects, as well as routine inspections to maintain regulatory compliance. Inspections are mandatory for all new construction projects that affect fire safety systems, involve environmental regulations, or other regulated activities designed to protect the health and safety of the community.
Inspections are completed by Fire Prevention code enforcement officers as well as engine companies, which conduct regular inspections of businesses in their response area for fire safety, hazardous material handling, and pre-fire planning purposes.
