The Fire Prevention Division conducts property inspections when:
- a complaint is received regarding fire safety
- a request is made to assist a property owner or occupant to comply with the Fire Code.
A Fire Code inspection can be started by making a request or by a Fire Prevention Officer. During the inspection by the Fire Prevention Officer, the property owner will be shown any violations to the Fire Code and asked to correct the violations. A Fire Safety Inspection Report, Inspection Order or other written recommendations will be provided.
Day Care Inspections
Licensed child care programs have to meet and maintain provincial standards. These standards are set out in the Day Nurseries Act. The standards help program operators meet the health, safety and developmental needs of the children in their care. The Gravenhurst Fire Department conducts Home Day Care inspections of child care facilities to assess the fire and life safety of a building.
Please contact the Fire Prevention Division at 705-687-3414 to request an inspection or for further information.
