Home fire safety inspections are available by appointment. These home inspections are conducted as a courtesy of the DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services (F&EMS) Department's Firefighting Division. They will look for overloaded outlets, working smoke detectors, unobstructed exit routes from your home, and good visibility from the street. A copy of the inspection findings will be given to the resident along with suggestions. A follow-up appointment may also be requested. Our goal in providing this service is to make sure that your home is as free of fire hazards as possible. Call (202) 673-3331 for an appointment.
