Fire Company Inspection Program
The Chula Vista Fire Department performs fire and life safety inspection services—in part—through the Fire Company Inspection Program (FCIP). The purpose of the program is to increase the current level of service and accomplish inspections of all commercial occupancies annually. Fire crews will also take this opportunity to become familiar with your business’s physical layout (pre-plan)—a great benefit if a real emergency were to occur.
This program is limited to “light hazard” commercial businesses classified in the California Fire Code as “B” (Business) and “M” (Mercantile) occupancies. An annual fee, in accordance with the table below, will be charged for the FCIP service and will be invoiced with your business license renewal. Annual “B” and “M” occupancy inspections will be performed throughout the year.
