Fire Department

Do I need to meet with the Fire Department about my new business?

This depends on the business and the specific circumstances. Factors such as occupancy numbers, potential fire hazards, or chemical storage may require approval of the Fire Department. Any inventory containing hazardous materials must be identified, listed and reported to the Fire Department annually. 

The Fire Department should be contacted early in the permitting process to evaluate your proposed business and plan.
