Fire Inspections and Permits

Since initiating its Fire Prevention Bureau in 1953, Lyndon Fire and Rescue has been a leader in fire prevention practices. Today, Lyndon Fire has primary jurisdiction in its district for inspections at commercial, business and multi-family properties. As the authority having jurisdiction our inspectors will conduct over 1,400 annual inspections, identifying over 2,000 violations and hazards.

Fees for inspections and permits are established by local ordinance. The fee is based upon the size (square foot) of the business or number of units in the apartment complex. The fee is collected and adminstered by Fire Recovery USA out of Rossmore, CA. This fee will include one (1) follow-up inspection if needed. Failure to correct violations by the date noted on the inspection will cause additional inspections which will result in additional fees and could initiate criminal citations.

Electronic Inspections
