What is a fire inspection?

The best way to combat fires is to prevent them before they start. Routine building inspections are one of the most effective ways to do that. According to the Georgia State Code the Fire Marshal’s Office may inspect all structures and premises for the purpose of ascertaining and causing to be corrected any conditions liable to cause fire, contribute to the spread of fire, interfere with firefighting operations, or endanger life. We achieve our goal by:

  • Identifying and correcting fire code violations
  • Educating business and property owners about fire and life safety
  • Reducing fire loss
  • Providing less demand on public emergency services by reducing fire and life safety risks
