Fire Code Enforcement
The St. Albans Fire Department continues in its efforts to enforce Fire Codes on structures within the city. This has become a greater challenge due to lack of staffing of the department. The department annually conducts a pre-fire plan on each business within the city. The three shifts fill out a check off list of possible infractions they are to check for. If a particular business has an infraction such as a locked or blocked exit they are advised to remedy the situation while the firefighters are on site. The Shift Commander then turns in the paperwork and I do a follow up inspection. I also answer complaints from citizens on particular situations and routinely do spot inspections.
