Fire Inspections Services

Fire Inspection Services' mission is to help reduce the negative impact from fire and other related emergencies through community education, focused hazard mitigation, and code enforcement. The division is charged with issuing key permits related to fire protection and prevention and performing plan review of new and rehabbed properties to ensure safety and adherence to the Minnesota State Fire Code.

In addition, Fire Inspection Services works in partnership with the Minneapolis Fire Department to ensure that commercial properties and high occupancy dwelling units (structures with 4 or more housing units) are safe and meet the requirements of the Minnesota State Fire Code and local building and/or Housing Maintenance Codes.

Finally, Fire Inspection Services conducts regular inspections and issues permits to business owners who have hazardous chemicals or materials stored on their property. This critical program helps ensure the safety of the City’s residents, visitors, and our own first responders (police, fire, EMS) when they are called to assist.
