Upcoming Inspection Delays: In order to meet requirements for continuing education on the Fire Code, some CSD staff members will be attending the 34th Annual Colorado Educational Institute of the International Code Council, from March 4-8 in Denver. While these classes enable us to better serve the community, please know there may be a delay in scheduling inspections or getting questions answered that week. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Inspections & Safety Visits
Loveland Fire Rescue Authority performs inspections and Fire Safety Visits at all businesses in the LFRA jurisdiction. These visits can either be “drop in” or scheduled in advance, depending on the size of the business or building, and the availability of business employees or owners.
There are many goals for these Safety Visits. The priority is to make sure the building is safe for the owners, employees and customers. Fire personnel also become more familiar with the layout of the building and any fire protection systems that are in place. Firefighters also are able to answer questions about fire safety plans – at both the business and in the home – and can assist owners in emergency planning and continuity of operations.
Fire inspectors want to make sure exiting is safe and compliant with the International Fire Code; that fire protection systems have been inspected at designated intervals and are in working order; that electrical equipment is in good repair; and that the property address is visible and the site is accessible by emergency vehicles.
If your business needs an Inspection/Safety Visit, please contact the Community Safety Division at (970) 962-2537.
