    Commercial buildings are inspected by the Grand Rapids Fire Department to ensure that life safety and property protection of the the Fire Code are being maintained. These inspections are primarily conducted and over seen by the Fire Prevention Bureau.

    In 2007 a Fire Company Inspection program was instituted. Some businesses are now being inspected by Fire Companies.

    The Grand Rapids Fire Department provides pre-inspection packets to the business owner prior to the inspection date. The packet, available to download as a PDF, includes:

    • General Fire Inspection Requirements
    • Inspection Procedures for Existing Buildings, and
    • Fire Inspection Service Fees
