Program Overview

The Huntington Beach Fire Department performs fire inspections at a frequency determined by our Community Risk Assessment.  These inspections follow the California Fire Code which has been adopted by the City.   City businesses are inspected to ensure that these codes and regulations are followed.  Performing such inspections minimizes the chances of fire and property damage while increasing public safety.  In this capacity, the fire department serves business owners as a valuable resource to safeguard their property investments.
