The Avalon Fire Department is currently in the process of conducting fire inspections for businesses for 2015.  

The inspections, held each year, are designed to ensure compliance with local fire codes and to identify and correct any potential problems.

Specific issues the Fire Department will be looking for include required quantities and types of fire extinguishers, exit signage, exit clearance, flammable liquids and other hazardous materials, extension cords and adaptors as well as smoke detectors, fire sprinkler systems and quarterly sprinkler checks, if applicable.

Also, the Fire Department reminds businesses to ensure that addresses are posted prominently on the front of buildings.

While businesses are subject to inspections at any time during this year’s schedule, the Fire Department understands that some days may be better than others for such inspections and allows local business owners and managers to reserve specific days for their visit.

Currently, a number of days are open throughout the next four months.  It is the intention of the Fire Department to complete all inspections by the end of May.

Business owners and managers who would like to reserve a specific date can call the Avalon Fire Department at 310-510-0203, ext. 334 or ext. 0 or they can speak with “A”shift members Capt. John Meffert, Mark Bray or Ryan Keeline.
