The Dennis Fire Department is committed to protect and serve the people of the Town of Dennis. The Fire Inspection office is obligated by law to conduct Fire Inspections. The Department is confident that through education and awareness your place of business can be fire safe for your guests, employees, residents and our firefighters.
By working together with the community, we believe these fire inspections will greatly reduce the occurrence of injury and the impact of a fire on your business. State and local codes require every business receive a regular fire inspection. The inspections will also ensure permits needed for your business are in place and current.
The best way for you to prepare is to review our online checklist. Please click here for Fire Safety Guidelines for Commercial Properties.
