How can I prepare for the inspection?
The Deer Park Fire Marshal's Office has prepared an informational brochure, "Are You Up To Code" (Coming Soon), which will outline the most common fire code violations. This brochure is design to address the majority of the questions regarding an inspection. A copy of the brochure will be available by contacting our office and a Fire Inspector will deliver the brochure and go over any questions you may have.
