Fire Inspections

The goal of the Fire Marshal's Office is for all businesses, operations, occupancies and events in the City of Forney to be safe, successful and in accordance with the Fire Code. Fire Inspections play a key part in meeting this goal.

Inspection Process

Fire inspectors inspect new construction of buildings and structures and all existing commercial buildings and structures to search for fire hazards and to ensure that federal, state, and local fire codes are met. They also test and inspect fire protection systems and fire extinguishing equipment to ensure proper operation. Violations are documented and require a re-inspection to ensure compliance with the code requirements. Non-compliance of requirements are subject to citation and legal action.

Inspector Certification

Fire Inspectors maintain a Texas Commission of Fire Protection Certification and take continuing education code related classes to maintain their certification and skill level.
