FIRE DEPARTMENT

 

The fire department is concerned with life safety in the event of a fire.  They will review the plans for access (is the driveway wide enough for a fire truck reach the site, is there sufficient width for a firefighter to navigate around the house in the event of a fire, etc.), construction methods (are the building materials non-combustible to a certain time requirement, is there separation between occupancies, etc.), and life safety (is there adequate egress from each sleeping room, are there smoke detectors in all required locations, etc.).

We wait, like many others to receive information from the city and other local sources about this rebuilding process. We will be updating this website page and our social media outlets as soon as we receive information.
