Business Applications - Annual Fire Safety Permits

All businesses are required to have an inspection on a regular basis by the City of DeLand Fire Department. Assessments as to the frequency of inspections will be made by utilizing permitting, compliance, on site, and any other information provided or obtained. Each inspection will vary on time based on the number of buildings, building stories, type of business, number and types of fire systems, and hazards present. The time may also vary based on the number, if any, of violations present at the time of the inspection. A deficiency notice will be provided, if necessary, within a timely manner along with the time frame for reinspection.
