Annual fire safety inspections are conducted throughout the City of Euless by the Fire Department. Euless contains a mixed business base consisting of apartments, churches, light industry, commercial, retail, office, schools, hotels and mid-rise buildings. Target hazards are visited annually by inspectors from the Fire Marshal's Office. All other businesses are scheduled for a pre-fire walkthrough by in-service Engine Companies every other year, with a formal inspection by the Fire Marshal's Office conducted when possible in the years a pre-fire walkthrough is not planned. Engine Company personnel watch for fire hazards during the pre-fire walkthroughs, ask for voluntary compliance and forward the items found to the Fire Marshal's Office if necessary for follow up. A strong effort is made to ensure that each business receives a visit from a fire inspector or in-service Engine Company at least once a year.
Commercial fire inspections are conducted to help protect the lives of people who work and do business in the City, to protect its infrastructure, to protect the business owners' investment in their properties and to reduce the risks to fire personnel who may have to respond in an emergency to a commercial building.
Home Inspections are conducted by request only. However, home fire inspections are important and you are encouraged to download the home safety checklist and/or the pool safety checklist to help ensure your home is safe. If you need any assistance, please feel free to call the Fire Marshal's Office at 817-685-1600.
Special Inspections are conducted as needed and are generally specific in nature. Examples would include testing fire alarm systems, testing sprinkler systems, testing gates across fire lanes, inspecting vent-a-hood systems and similar systems.
