Types of Inspections

There are two very broad categories of inspections conducted by the Fire Department:

  • Inspections of existing occupancies, and
  • Inspections of new construction

Inspections of existing occupancies Fire Prevention personnel conduct inspections of existing occupancies according to the type of occupancy, and fire companies conduct inspections through the Company Inspection Program (CIP) according to geographic location. If your building is equipped with any fire protection systems, you must have each one tested and certified annually. Examples of systems that you may have include:

  • Fire alarm systems
  • Fire sprinkler systems
  • Fire doors
  • Smoke detectors
  • Standpipes of any type
  • Fire escapes
  • Hood systems

New construction inspections commonly conducted by Fire Prevention Bureau personnel:

  • Fire sprinkler inspections
  • Fire alarm inspections
  • The final "FPB" inspection
