Fire Inspection Program



Our objective is to prevent emergency incidents that endanger lives and damage property. One of the methods we utilize to accomplish this is through our proactive inspection program. It is our goal to reduce the number of fires and other emergencies that occur in our community.



  • To ensure the safety of employees and citizens who enter commercial businesses within our city.
  • To protect our business community from financial loss.
  • To protect firefighters when they are called upon to mitigate emergencies that occur within businesses throughout the city.


To accomplish these goals, our personnel are tasked with inspecting commercial occupancies within the City of Tyler. While some of these occupancies are inspected at no charge, there are certain types that are associated with an annual inspection fee.
