The Fire Prevention Division is tasked with fire inspections within the city limits of Archdale and Trinity.
North Carolina General Statues mandate inspections in all commercial occupancies. The North Carolina State Building and Fire Codes are periodically updated and adopted by local ordinance and are enforceable by state law. The provisions of the code shall apply to the construction, alteration, movement, enlargement, replacement, repair, equipment, use and occupancy, location, maintenance, removal and demolition of every building or structure or any appurtenances connected or attached to such buildings or structures. The purpose of these inspections is to maintain a level of safety for both occupants and structures.
The Division also performs investigations of all fires within the Guil-Rand Fire Department district. Investigators work closely with local, state and federal agencies to determine both the origin and cause of fires occurring in the district.
Additionally, the Fire Prevention Division oversees community risk reduction and fire prevention for the department.
The Fire Prevention Division is happy to help with any questions regarding fire inspections, as well as questions or scheduling of Fire Prevention or Public Education events!
