Fire Inspections

The Guil-Rand fire department conducts fire inspections for the cities of Archdale and Trinity North Carolina.  All inspectors are certified by the North Carolina Code Council Qualifications Board.

The Mission of the inspections division is to enforce the intent of the North Carolina fire prevention code, to provide a reasonable level life safety and property protection from the hazards of fire, explosion or dangerous conditions in new or existing buildings.

North Carolina Law requires all businesses, churches, educational institutions and multi-family residenced to have regular fire inspections. All structures requiring an inspection are inspected annually in the Guil-Rand Fire Department service area.

There is no charge for a general routine inspection. HOWEVER, certain requests or operations may have a designated fee that will be assessed. If there are violations of the fire code a fee or fine may be assessed if the items are not corrected within a certain time period.

Visit our permits section for a list of special fee assessed inspections or requests.
