Fayetteville Fire Department Patch

Fire Inspections

The Fire Prevention Division is responsible for conducting state mandated fire inspections and fire code enforcement. Code enforcement is conducted in all occupancies except one and two family dwellings. On July 1, 1991 the State Fire Code was adopted. State legislation enacted a mandatory inspection schedule. This schedule governs the frequency of inspections based on occupancy classification.

Once every year  Hazardous
