Fire Inspections

Whenever there is a fire in a home (including chimney fires), the local fire company will contact Nick Pappas, Code Enforcement Officer, to make him aware of it. He will then need to do an inspection of your home, before and after renovations, to ensure that the repairs are completed according to code.

The Code Enforcement Officer Conducts Annual Fire Inspections (In January) For All Commercial And Multiple Family Dwellings.

The following is a list of code requirements and fees:

  • There can be no obstruction of exits

  • Exit signs need to be illuminated

  • Evacuation and fire safety plans need to be in place and displayed

  • Building address numbers need to be displayed

  • Extension cords cannot be used for permanent wiring

  • There can be no open or exposed electrical wiring

  • Fire extinguishers need to be maintained

  • Fire alarms and life safety systems need to be maintained

  • Sprinkler systems need to be maintained


  • Initial Fire Inspection – Free
  • Initial Follow-up – Free
  • Second Follow-up – $25
  • All Other Visits – $50

The fees are incurred only when violations that have been charged are not abated after the second site visit.
