Fire Inspections

The City uses the 2013 California Fire Code, as amended by Monterey County, to ensure the safety of residents. This code establishes regulations affecting or relating to buildings, structures, processes, premises and a reasonable degree of life and property safeguards regarding:
  • Conditions affecting the safety of fire fighters and emergency responders during emergency operations
  • Conditions hazardous to life, property or public welfare in the use or occupancy of buildings, structures or premises.
  • Fire hazards in the buildings, structures or on premises from use of, occupancy of, or operation.
  • Matters related to the construction, extension, repair, alteration or removal of fire suppression or alarm systems.
  • The hazard of fire and explosion arising from the storage, handling or use of structures, materials or devices.
The City anticipates a new set of codes, Title 24, in the next year which will be the 2016 California Building Standards Code which will include the California Fire Building Code.
