Inspection Information

When the County Fire Marshal's Office within the Los Santos Fire Departments visits your building for an inspection, they will divide your buildings into classes. Each room or floor will be inspected individually and differently. Each room and floor will be given a class, it is likely that some rooms will receive the same class, depending on the size, hazards, and devices in the room. This means your building will no longer be classed as a whole.

Kitchen

This is a potential hazard. This example being, your cooking stove being located right under a wooden cabinet, that's hinged onto your kitchen wall. This example is a no go, why? The material the cabinet is made of, is wood. The cabinet may catch fire at any point during cooking, if something goes wrong.

How do you make your kitchen safer?

Taking the last example, the safest option is to re-locate your cabinet where the stove can't create a hazardous environment. Installing a smoke detector on your kitchen's ceiling, allowing it to go off when your meal is burning is also recommended to create a safer environment. Last but not least, do not forget to have a fire extinguisher nearby.

When your kitchen is being inspected, a Fire Inspector will be checking your stove, if the connection lines are properly installed and not damaged, the safety and warranty seals of your Fire Extinguisher (if placed) will be checked. The Smoke Detector that is installed will also be checked, the cover will be removed so the Inspector can freely check if the device is properly installed and in working order.


Firearms

A room that contains firearms is a hazardous environment, especially if there's a fire. Ammunition and heat don't comply together, as the shells expand and ricochet in unknown directions, creating a dangerous situation when FireFighters enter the premises.

Firearms and ammunition need to be locked up in gun lockers or containers so they're safely stored and protected. Think of gun lockers that are specifically made to withstand fire, this decreases the chance of a dangerous environment. Installing Smoke Detectors and Fire Extinguishers allow you, and the Emergency Services to safely deal with any dangerous situations promptly, depending on the size of the room, sometimes an automated sprinkler system will do the job as well, in compliance with any other safety device installed.

During the inspection of this certain room, your sprinkler system will be checked, this ranges from an actual test, to checking the pipes, valves and signs of corrosion.

Automotive Garages

A certain type of building that doesn't only require Fire Safety Equipment to be installed, but also general safety systems, such as the suction system, used on exhausts to purge the fumes from the working environment as they contain Carbon Monoxide and Dioxide. Equipment is based on the size of the workshop, but more is always better.

However, being in an automotive garage, having more than one extinguisher is required. A working sprinkler system is required, at least two or more Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors are also required. A call point is recommended, but not required, however, a Fire Alarm is. At least one Fire Hose is required.
