Fire Inspections

Fire Prevention Inspectors enforce the Ontario Fire Code. You can request a general fire safety inspection or a fire inspection for the purchase or sale of a property.

If you have a Fire Code concern, you can request a complaint inspection. All personal information will remain confidential.

You may need to pay a fee to have an inspection.
