Fire Inspection Program
We're committed to making Vulcan County a safer place to live, work, and play. Commercial, industrial, and public assembly buildings are inspected on a request or complaint basis to educate business and property owners about fire and community safety, as well as to identify and correct any fire or life safety issues.
During a fire inspection, buildings are checked for:
- the condition of fire safety equipment (fire alarm systems, sprinkler systems, emergency lighting, fire extinguishers, etc.)
- fire hazards
- life safety issues, and
- access for fire fighting
Inspections are conducted under the Authority of the Safety Codes Act and Vulcan County's Regional Quality Management Plan and are compliant with the National Fire Code AB Edition.
Inspections protect the health and safety of you, your business, your clients and first responders who may need to work in and around your building.
Types of Fire Inspections
A routine inspection is a general occupancy fire safety inspection for public and commercial buildings which was requested or scheduled.
Specialized or Process Inspection
A specialized or process inspection is an inspection to examine a particular hazard or risk. Businesses may request this type of inspection and they tend to be less frequent.
A complaint inspection is conducted upon receipt of a public complaint regarding fire or life safety hazards existing within a public or commercial building.
