Per Resolution NS 27,591, effective October 1 2007, the City of Santa Cruz established fees and charges for services, inspections and permits under the fire prevention code of the city of Santa Cruz.

Basic fire inspection rates for inspection services to safeguard to a reasonable degree life and property from the hazards of fire and explosion arising from the storage, handling and use of hazardous substances, materials and devices and from conditions hazardous to life or property in the use or occupancy of buildings or premises. $90.00 per hour (minimum 1 hour per visit). Re-inspections to gain compliance after initial inspection are $90.00 per hour (minimum ½ hour per visit).

What this means to you as a business owner, is that the Fire Department will be requesting fire safety inspections of your business every 1-3 years. This includes apartments, hotels, restaurants, retail stores, medical facilities and all other small businesses. These inpsections are mandated by the Fire Department and are not optional. With the passing of Resolution NS 27,591, there will be a fee charged for all business fire safety inspections(see above).
