Chiefland businesses to get safety inspections

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

The City of Chiefland will begin inspecting businesses May 2 to ensure commercial businesses within city limits are in compliance with codes set by the National Fire Protection Association, according to the city's Building and Zoning Director Bill Hammond.
"It's been around for quite some time," Hammond said about the Life Safety Code, "we just haven't had time to get around to it."
The inspections, free of charge, will happen yearly and will begin in alphabetical order by business name.
Hammond said the inspections are important in protecting the lives of the public and employees, and he added that yearly inspections can keep insurance rates down.
"If they do have a fire or something, it can also help show they were doing what they should."
Hammond said he'll be checking things such as smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, sprinkler systems, exit signs and accessibility to exits.
Emphasis will be placed on immediate threats to safety.
"They'd have to get that fixed pretty quick," he said.
