Do you need the services of an Independent Fire Code Inspector?

Tips to getting your possible non-compliant properties inspected by an independent fire code inspector

Today most Fire Departments are taking non-compliant cases straight to prosecution.

Compliance is now expected and failure to comply can result in fines and prison terms.

Last year the Office of The Fire Marshal starting promoting a Zero Tolerance Policy.

They are now putting on courses for fire department personal entitled "Walk Your Talk To Zero Tolerance" a one-day workshop enhancing a stronger enforcement approach towards compliance with the Fire Code. These courses are to explain the legislation, how to commence Court Proceedings and processes necessary for successful prosecutions.

This is why you need the services of an Independent Fire Code Inspector who is fully conversant with Fire Code issues. He will offer advice on the best method of attaining compliance before the authorities become involved, thereby eliminating the risk of prosecution and fines of up to $50,000.

To-day the services of a Home Inspector are considered a necessary part of any real estate transaction.
So too must the services of an Independent Fire Code Inspector be considered necessary for any transactions involving multi-unit income properties.

Other properties, such as retrofit addresses any building with 2 or more apartments, from the house with a basement apartment right up to the apartment building.

So for all your Retrofit needs remember The Fire Guy
