Warehouse Inspection Group
The mission of the Warehouse Inspection Group is to perform comprehensive inspections on these highly technical storage arrangements in order to reduce large-loss fires involving warehouses. Fire Prevention’s Warehouse Inspection Group performs annual inspections and walk-throughs to ensure proper storage heights, arrangements, and commodity classification. A permit program was developed to help manage this program and verify the adequacy of fire safety systems in high-piled combustible storage facilities.
High-Piled Storage and Tire Storage Permits
High-piled storage systems have been involved in some of the largest fire loss incidents across the nation, resulting in huge monetary costs, interruption of business, and increasing insurance costs. The Denver Fire Department developed a high-piled storage program in 2004 and is continuously striving to keep up with the newest in fire protection solutions for the unique challenges associated with high-piled storage facilities.
