Although we may be able to accommodate you with an earlier fire alarm test, sprinkler test or a general walk through and provide suggestions; a final inspection will ALWAYS be required.
A final fire inspection must be made when:
No, we will be out to conduct inspections at random.
Most business owners do not have the specialized knowledge necessary to conduct a fire and life safety inspection of their business. Nor do they realize the devastating effects that a fire or hazardous materials incident can have on their business. Business failure rates after a significant fire can be as high as 70 or 80 percent. Your best bet is to be prepared not to have the fire to begin with.
The amount of time you will need to make corrections depends on the severity of the problem. Some violations of the fire code are so severe that they must be corrected immediately. Others make take days or even weeks to correct. Consult with your Fire Prevention Officer concerning the amount of time which is appropriate to make corrections.
Typical Fire Code violations include:
1. Fire extinguishers that have not been serviced annually or low on charge. Extinguishers need to be serviced and ready for use in the event of a fire.
2. Blocked or locked exit doors. The building occupants will need exit doors to be available in the event of an emergency.
3. Extension cords used in place of permanent wiring methods. Extension cords are not manufactured to handle the same amperage loads as permanent wiring methods. Cords need to be unplugged and stored until the next use.
4. Address or suite numbers not posted. The Fire Department will need to find your building if you have a fire or other emergency. Address numbers should be 12 inches tall for industrial uses, 8 inches for commercial, 6 inches for residential, and 3 inches for individual suite numbers.
5. Exit signs missing or not illuminated. Exit signs show you to location of exits in the event of a power failure.
6. Sprinkler systems not serviced and up to date. A properly operating sprinkler system is essential in putting out a fire.
7. Fire alarm systems not serviced and up to date. Fire alarm systems notify the building occupants of the emergency situation so that the building can be evacuated.
8. Open electrical boxes or exposed wiring. Exposed wiring poses an electrocution hazard to the occupants and emergency personnel.
9. Placards not posted indicating hazard rating of materials. NFPA placards tell the Fire Department when you have flammables or other hazardous chemicals in the event of a fire.
10. Improper handling or storage of flammable materials. Improper use or handling of flammable materials can be the cause of a fire.
If excessive return inspections are conducted without correcting violations, you may be charged a reinspection fee.
Yes! Locally adopted codes and regulations are concurrently applicable to the requirements of the Office of the State Fire Marshal. Local requirements may be more stringent than those adopted and enforced by the OSFM. Therefore, the OSFM encourages building owners to verify compliance with both the state-adopted codes as well as those imposed by local authorities. Compliance with OSFM rules and codes does not guarantee compliance with local codes or ordinances.
