How much time do I have to comply with the fire code?

A fire inspector will issue you an Inspection Report/Violation Notice detailing all the conditions that violate the fire code and could cause a fire and endanger life and/or property. These deficiencies must be corrected immediately. A re-inspection to verify the abatement of the deficiencies noted will be coordinated with the business owner and the inspector. Most re-inspections are conducted 30 days after the initial inspection but a shorter follow-up period may be scheduled. Failure to correct the deficiencies prior to the first re-inspection date will result in the issuance of a final correction notice and another date will be identified to verify compliance.  Deficiencies not corrected on the third re-inspection may result in a legal action.
