Fire Prevention Inspectors are responsible for preventing fires through periodic inspection of commercial or public buildings, licensed facilities/operations and other buildings in the city of Arlington.  Inspectors are also responsible for certificate of occupancy inspections for new businesses.  Additionally they inspect fire suppression and notification systems including alarms, sprinklers and cooking hoods.  Inspectors play a key role in crowd management and path of egress maintenance at large scale venues such as AT&T Stadium, Six Flags Over Texas and the Ballpark at Arlington. Many of the Fire Prevention Inspectors are also cross training in other disciplines to include peace officer, explosive detection k-9 handler and explosive ordnance disposal technician.
Fire Codes and Permits

The City of Arlington has adopted the 2003 International Fire Code’s requirements into its City Ordinances.  Fire Prevention’s staff of 13 Fire Inspectors/Investigators conducts recurring fire code compliance inspections to ensure the safety of occupants of public buildings.  Each year, over 10,000 inspections are conducted.  Fire Prevention conducts certificate of occupancy inspections for all new business, as well as operational permits for higher hazard operations, and fire detection and suppression systems.
