City of Colorado Springs / Fire / Business Information / Small Business Inspection Program



Small Business Inspection Program

The Colorado Springs Fire Department, Division of the Fire Marshal prides itself on our proactive approach to fire safety. Our Division of the Fire Marshal  is based upon three principles: education, engineering and lastly, enforcement. Our goal is to provide a safe environment to the citizens and visitors of the city of Colorado Springs. Unfortunately, staffing shortages prevent us from inspecting all commercial properties on a regular basis, so we are requesting your assistance. We have developed this voluntary self-inspection program that business owners and managers can use to provide a fire safe business or building for their patrons, staff, as well as themselves.

This program has been designed as an educational tool and is not intended to take the place of an official fire department inspection. We have designed this program to include B, F-1, F-2, M, S-1, and S-2 occupancy classifications as defined by the 2009 edition of the International Fire Code as adopted by the City of Colorado Springs, in simple terms, most small businesses. The following list contains general requirements only, which are based upon common code violations found in the occupancy classifications listed above.

In order to better safeguard your facility, we ask that you simply take a few moments to review the attached form. If you answer NO to any of the listed items, then steps should be taken to correct the violations.

If you have any questions, concerns or need assistance, please call the Division of the Fire Marshal at 719-385-5978 and a fire code inspector will assist you.

Sincerely,
Brett T. Lacey, Fire Marshal
