Reminder to Local Business Owners that Okotoks Fire Services annual commercial fire inspections for 2020 are underway.
Please ensure you are prepared for our arrival – including a current fire extinguisher inspection.
Annual inspections are covered under the cost of your Business License, however if multiple visits are required before compliancy is achieved, the business owner is subject to charges as per the Rates & Fees Bylaw.
The Okotoks Fire Department inspects all commercial properties in town to ensure emergency lighting, alarm and sprinkler systems are all operating optimally in the event of a fire or emergency. The fire department will check to ensure access to emergency exits and any electrical/furnace rooms are accessible and that all fire extinguishers have been inspected annually and are in good working order. Ceiling tiles should be intact to prevent the spread of flames and smoke in the event of a fire.
Commercial fire inspections are completed approximately one year from the time of the last inspection. For more information on commercial fire inspections please call 403-938-4066.
