Fire Inspection

InspectionsBroward County Local Fire Code requires that all municipality conduct fire inspections at all businesses and multifamily residential occupancies within its jurisdiction at least annually.

A fire inspection includes the initial life safety inspection both inside and outside of each location, processing the required documentation, data collection for emergency planning and performing re-inspections when violations are identified. Fees are calculated based on square footage, fire protection systems present, and the number of dwelling units in each multifamily residential building.

Studies by the National Fire Protection Association have shown one of the most effective preventive measures to eliminate or reduce fire loss and damage is to have an annual fire inspection program.
