The goal of Selma Fire's Inspection Program is to minimize risk of life and property loss from fire. We do this by eliminating hazardous conditions in businesses.

National statistics show that 70% of businesses that suffer a major fire incident never reopen their doors, while 25% of businesses that do reopen their doors fail within one year. Big fires always start small. If fires in structures are not contained quickly, they spread through the building structure and cannot be extinguished. These uncontrolled fires can spread to surrounding buildings.

For these reasons, it is vital for businesses and multi-unit residential owners to be educated about proper fire prevention practices. They also should be inspected every year.

We invite you to read the fact sheet to learn more about the Fire Inspection Program. We have also  provided is a checklist that outlines the basic items addressed at the time of inspection to help you better understand our program and prepare for your next inspection.

If you have specific questions about our Fire Inspection Program, please feel free to contact Fire Inspector Peter Cacossa  at peterc@cityofselma.com or (559) 891-2211 x3305.
