COMMERCIAL FIRE INSPECTIONS
The Albertville Fire Department requires fire inspections every other year for local businesses. Some occupancy types require an annual inspection (hotels, apartment buildings and some assembly occupancies). Our Fire Marshal keeps a schedule of which businesses are due for inspection and schedules those inspections accordingly. The Fire Chief, Assistant Fire Chief, and Assistant Inspector may all conduct fire inspections.
AFD strives to help business owners pass their inspections and allow adequate time to take care of issues that businesses may have failed in the initial inspection. The AFD motto is – “Our Business is Keeping Your Business in Business”.
There is no cost for the initial inspection and any follow up inspections up to three. After that, if the business has had plenty of time and opportunity to resolve any issues and has not, the business will then be charged for any subsequent re-inspections.
