Apartment, Condominium, Townhome Inspections

As part of the annual Fire Safety Inspections conducted in all multi-family residential occupancies (three units or more), the Fire Department checks many different components of fire safety, such as proper exiting, emergency access, and more. One purpose of this inspection is to ensure that all units have functioning smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers.

  • As a property owner or manager of a multi-family residential occupancy (rented), you are required to conduct tests of all smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers in all rented units and keep those records for the Fire Department personnel to see during the annual inspection. See the links below for details.
  • As a property owner, manager, or homeowners’ association president of a multi-family residential occupancy such as owner-occupied condominiums, you are required to ask the homeowners to conduct tests of these devices, and you must keep the test results for Fire Department personnel to see during the annual inspection. See the links below for details.
