2. Do your fire inspectors conduct plans review? –>Comment usually Site Plan only
3. Do your fire inspectors conduct inspections on new construction / alterations (building permit issued)? –>We are going with building Department to all Part 3 Occupancy Inspections, NFPA 96 inspections and as requested. Have good relationship with Building Department. We conduct monthly meetings with CBO and Plans reviewer
4. Does your building department pay the wages of your fire inspectors that do plans review? –-> No
5. Does your building department cover the cost of BCIN courses, building codes, exams and annual certification? –>No
