The Okotoks Fire Department inspects all commercial properties in town to ensure emergency lighting, alarm and sprinkler systems are all operating optimally in the event of a fire or emergency. The fire department will check to ensure access to emergency exits and any electrical/furnace rooms are accessible and that all fire extinguishers have been inspected annually and are in good working order. Ceiling tiles should be intact to prevent the spread of flames and smoke in the event of a fire.
The Okotoks Fire Department is currently contacting businesses to book a personal safety inspection appointment and will continue inspections into spring. Commercial fire inspections are completed approximately one year from the time of the last inspection. For more information on commercial fire inspections please call 403-938-4066.
