Annual Life Safety System and Equipment Inspections
The Phoenix Fire Code requires life safety systems to be inspected by a Phoenix Fire Department approved Fire Protection company on a regular basis. You can find a company by searching the phone book or Internet. If you have had prior inspections their will be the last company's tag a fixed to the device(s). All companies that conduct these system inspections shall be approved by the Phoenix Fire Department. You may contact us to confirm if a company is approved. After the inspections are conducted the company will provide you a written report. This report will note any code deficiencies that require correction.
