Do I need a fire inspection?

The Fire Department will conduct a Residential Fire Safety inspection upon the request of an owner or occupant. Call 294-3346 ext 7201 to schedule an inspection. Commercial occupancies are inspected for a number of reasons:

  • Change of tenancy, or the re-occupancy of an existing building
  • New buildings and additions
  • License-holders (liquor, victualling, education, daycare, body shops)
  • Reports of Fire Code violations
  • Targeted risks (places of assembly, hazardous materials)
