Inspections of new commercial buildings after one year of occupancy, periodic inspections of existing commercial structures, as well as the inspection of occupancies presenting potential for significant life safety concerns fall within the objectives of the Risk Reduction Bureau.  Fire Safety Inspectors also assist with fire investigations, issue fireworks permits and construction-related burn permits, review citizen complaints and respond to inquiries.

The Uniform Fire Code which is adopted by the State of Florida and is part of the Florida Fire Prevention Code, Section; gives the AHJ authority to conduct and inspect, at reasonable times, any building or premises for dangerous or hazardous conditions as set forth by the code.
