Business Inspections

Commercial Fire Inspection

The Fire District conducts routine Fire and Life Safety Inspections, and Hazardous Materials Permitting on an annual basis.  Such inspections decrease the threat of fires, and promote the public’s safety and welfare.

The District’s Plan Review/Permit Fee Schedule help cover the cost of these safety inspections, and encourage prompt compliance with fire codes.  The fee also cover Operational Permits provided after the business is inspected and confirmed safe. Contact the North Lyon County Fire District Office at 775-575-3310 for more information about fire inspections and the fee structure.

The Fire Chief and his staff are responsible for citywide enforcement of the adopted 2018 International Fire Code, NRS and local ordinances as they relate to life and safety. Other responsibilities include public education, fire investigation, business license inspections, pyrotechnic permitting, pre-incident survey programs and code compliance for large community events. Our upgraded inspection programs have reduced the number of Commercial Fires in our community in recent years and we plan on future improvements.
