Fire and Life Safety

The Fire and Life Safety Division is staffed by nine Fire Investigators, four Fire Inspectors, one Deputy Fire Marshal and one Fire Marshal. The responsibilities of our Division are divided into three areas:

Fire Code Compliance

The North Carolina Fire Prevention Code Addresses hazards and life-safety issues which can endanger business owners, employees, patrons, and fire fighters. Inspectors document violations and educate the responsible party on how to comply with the Code. The Fire Department strives to inspect all occupancies (with the exception of one and two-family dwellings) on an annual basis.
