Inspections-Fire Prevention

Non-Residential & Commercial Properties

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

Inspection notification(s) will be sent via mail, two weeks prior to inspection. Please reference the fire inspection report to do a self-inspection prior to your scheduled inspection.

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