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.
