Fire Business Inspections

The purpose of the fire annual business inspection is to focus on preventable causes of injury, loss of life and loss of property by providing inspections where human occupancy is the greatest and in areas containing high hazards. To achieve this, the Fire Department will advise occupants and owners on the portions of the fire code that deal with the means of egress, building design safeguards which include the building’s fire protection features and fire protection equipment.

Fire Annual Business Inspection Application

Fire Operational Permits

Operational permits are required under the California Fire Code. Operational fire permits, when issued, allow the applicant to legally conduct the operation or business permitted for a period of 12-months. Permits are renewed annually. These permits have been established to provide a focused survey and inspection of the operation and/or building to help ensure minimum fire and life safety requirements are maintained at an acceptable level.
