Business Inspections

Stillwater Fire Department provides yearly inspections for Stillwater’s 1,600 business occupancies. The Fire Marshal's Office will contact you to schedule an annual inspection that is convenient with your schedule.

Inspection goals: to identify potential fire or life-safety issues, to work with business owners to correct any deficiencies, and to ensure a safe environment for the Stillwater community. Inspections also give Stillwater firefighters an opportunity to preplan for potential hazards they might encounter during an emergency incident.

The preplan includes locating the following:

  • Fire hydrant locations
  • Sprinkler locations
  • Fire alarm locations
  • Fire lanes
  • Storage of hazardous materials

To help the businesses and property owners with the annual inspection, the Fire Marshal’s Office created a checklist to help identify potential code prior to the inspection.
