Fire Prevention Inspections

The Township regularly conducts fire prevention inspections of properties. These preemptive measures are in place for the safety of our residents, businesses and visitors and to prevent the loss of belongings or property. 

You will receive a notice of inspection via mail, two weeks prior to inspection. Please reference the fire inspection report* to do a self-inspection prior to us inspecting the property.

Fees for fire prevention inspections are based on the square footage size of the building, according to the following table.
