Due to the onset of the latest coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, technical fire inspections under the jurisdiction of the New Jersey Uniform Fire Code have been suspended until at least 31 March 2020. Fire inspection activity will resume when health officials determine it is safe for fire department Inspectors to carry out their duties safely and without being exposed to this disease.
In the interim, locations that are scheduled for annual inspections or re-inspections will not be subject to any penalty or official action until such time that the current health crisis is resolved. Issues involving "life safety issues" will be dealt with expeditiously on a case by case basis, in the interest of fire and life safety.
Contact the Fire Prevention Bureau ( 973-762-3200) for assistance in obtaining Fire Safety Permits and to conduct any other related business.
