Request an Inspection

The Fire Department conducts routine fire inspections of commercial, industrial and apartment buildings to ensure public safety and to obtain updated information on hazardous materials for the safety of the building occupants, firefighters, and the community.

For those of you wanting to get a jump on passing the fire inspection, two of the most common violations found are expired fire extinguishers and inoperative exit signs. If you maintain these items, it will expedite the inspection process.

The Shawnee Strategic Services Section coordinates fire and life safety inspections and related services. Some services include:

  • New construction plan reviews
  • New construction inspections

  • Hood System Fire Suppression System Testing

To schedule a fire inspection for a new business contact the Administrative offices by phone at (913) 742-6101. When requesting an inspection, we ask that you give us 72 hours advance notice.
