Fire and Life Safety Inspections

The fire and life safety inspection program was created in 2015 by ordinance of the Township of Hempfield. The goal of the program is to have every commercial building in Hempfield Township be free of fire hazards and to ensure compliance with the Hempfield Township Fire Prevention Code. The Township Code Enforcement Office and our third party inspection service, Code Enforcement Agency, administers this fire prevention code and life safety code.

Who will conduct the fire inspection?

Code Enforcement Agency will conduct the inspection of your facility. They may be assisted by members of the Hempfield Township Code Enforcement Office. The contact information for Code Enforcement Agency is:

Code Enforcement Agency
1633 State Route 51
Jefferson Hills, PA 15205

When will the fire inspector show up?

The fire inspector will not announce when he/she is coming, and the frequency of inspection is based on the type of facility. Some facilities are inspected once a year with some being inspected every three years.

What types of buildings are required to be inspected?

All commercial properties in Hempfield Township will be inspected on an annual or tri-annual basis. The frequency of the facilities inspection will be determined by its occupancy classification found in the 2009 International Building Code.
