Fire inspections are conducted for numerous reasons such as for business licenses, construction projects, and reoccurring fire and life safety inspections. Inspections are also needed for special type permits such as for special events, hot work, and open burning.
Business license inspections are made initially when a new business opens for operation or relocates to a new space. These inspections are reoccurring and are to ensure the space is up to code. Please contact Fire Inspector Jeffrey Smith at 775-833-8107 for any questions regarding business licenses or reoccurring fire and life safety inspections.
Fire Inspections are conducted during the life of a construction project. Most projects will require these types of inspections. Please contact Interim Fire Marshal Jennifer Donohue at 775-833-8127 for any questions regarding construction projects.
