Keeping Weston safe from fires is an ongoing concern, and our Fire Department provides a variety of services targeted to commercial, industrial, school, public assembly, health care and multi-residential properties, including:
- Annual commercial fire inspections: a review of commercial properties for fire code compliance.
- Fire investigations: research and inspect fires of suspicious origin, in collaboration with the Fire Suppression Branch.
Commercial Properties – Fire Requirements
All new construction, as well as building renovations, must ensure code compliance prior a building permit being issued. The review includes fire suppression devices, exits, storage, fire alarm systems and review of storage and manufacturing of hazardous materials.
To schedule a fire inspection, call the BSO Fire Marshal’s Bureau at 954-831-8210.

The FIre Department does not certify fire extinguishers, and is not permitted to recommend vendors who perform that service.
