Fire Station 81 will have an inspector available on Tuesdays. Please email or call to schedule a time. Upon arrival, Please enter into the rear Fire Department entrance on clara avenue, rather than the main parking lot, and call 386 626 7331 option 2 for an inspector to meet you.

Jurisdictions within Volusia County have an agreed upon uniform process for mobile and temporary cooking operations. Operations and policies for mobile and temporary cooking operations will be reviewed every three years coinciding with code cycle changes. Mobile cooking operation vehicles will be required to have a current Volusia County Mobile Cooking Operation decal to operate at any special event or anywhere within the jurisdictional boundaries of Volusia County. Fire inspections shall be conducted every 6 months, consistent with required hood suppression system inspections. Once the inspection is approved, the decal shall be placed by the inspecting jurisdiction onto the vehicle. The jurisdiction in which the cooking operation commences will require a site and gas leak inspection upon set-up and prior to start of cooking and/or warming.
