The Fire Department conducts reviews of nonstructural plans for all Class 1 structures. When applying for a building permit, a complete set of blueprints must be forwarded to the Fire Department for review. In many cases, state filing is also required. See the Indiana Department of Homeland Security website for specific requirements relating to State of Indiana plan reviews.
Inspections are conducted on an annual basis by firefighters and inspectors. Inspections are a great asset in improving overall safety and continuity for business owners, customers, and firefighters. Through inspections we are able to identify potential hazards and code deficiencies. The Fire Department enforces the 2008 Indiana Fire Code (2008 International Fire Code with Indiana amendments). See the Indiana Department of Homeland Security website for amendments to the code.
