Commercial Fire Inspections

The North Mason Regional Fire Authority performs annual fire inspections to mitigate potential fire and life safety hazards in commercial buildings.  All businesses are provided with a written report upon completion of their inspection. The report outlines corrections that need to be made in order to foster a fire safe environment.  Depending on the type of occupancy, fire inspections may be completed either once or twice a year.  These include buildings with commercial hood and cooking systems as well as hazardous materials storage facilities. 

The Authority strives to use these inspections as a way to interact with the community business owners in an effort to make a fire safe environment for all.  We do this by offering:

  • A safer working and living environment for employees and residents;
  • A safer environment for your patrons;
  • Business and job security. Up to 80 percent of all small businesses that experience a large fire never re-open.  This affects the business owner, employees and the community;
  • Better maintained building for improved re-sale value; and
  • A reduction in fire insurance premiums.

We believe our hands on approach to fire inspections is a benefit to North Mason business owners – we value our partnerships and believe our community is made stronger by the businesses that support this area.
