What is Inspected
The lieutenant and sergeant completed fire inspections on businesses and multi family dwellings. Businesses are checked for any fire hazards including emergency exit access, emergency lighting, updated fire extinguishers and storage of dangerous chemicals. All fire sprinkler systems or cooking grill hood systems are also inspected. The goals of the inspections are to protect employees, the community and firefighters. When problems are found, the businesses have a specified period of time to fix the problems. If they are not fixed, they are issued a violation and the business owner is required to go to court.
The Fire Division works closely with the city's building department to assess what is needed on any business structures being built or modified.
