Fire Inspection Services
Annual Fire Inspection
Fire Inspections are conducted on all commercial properties. The objective of these inspections is to enforce Fire Codes for properties and identify and remedy unsafe, hazardous and/or non-compliant conditions.
Annual inspections are also conducted for re-licensing of State run/approved childcare and adult care facilities. Our Inspectors also respond to complaints of possible unsafe conditions in public businesses/properties.
It is our intent to limit the probability or severity of fires and ensure life safety for both residents and visitors of Osceola County.
