These inspections occur at different times during the construction of the buildings. Upon completion and the passing of all inspections a Certificate of Occupancy or Letter of Compliance is issued.


Fire maintenance inspections are conducted in existing public buildings to ensure the buildings are maintaining and complying with adopted fire & life safety codes. These fire maintenance inspections are conducted on a regular basis throughout the year. These fire maintenance inspections occur in hotels/motels, restaurants, bars, day cares, mercantile, businesses, and industrial buildings.
