Fire Inspections

    The Fire Department conducts routine fire inspections of commercial, industrial and apartment buildings to ensure public safety and to obtain updated information on hazardous materials for the safety of the building occupants, firefighters, and the community.

    For those of you wanting to get a jump on passing the fire inspection, two of the most common violations found are expired fire extinguishers and inoperative exit signs. If you maintain these items, it will expedite the inspection process.

    The Shawnee Fire Marshals office coordinates fire and life safety inspections and related services. Some services include:
