Business Inspection


Each year the Fairview Fire Department does over 1,000 business fire safety inspections. This inspection may be done at your location more than one time per year based upon your business classification. By performing these inspections it allows us to stop fires before they start. It also gives our firefighters doing the inspections a chance to familiarize themselves with your building, this can save time if you should ever have an incident.
