In addition to the above inspection requirements through the Building Department, the City of Milton also requires inspections for fire and life safety issues in accordance with the State Minimum Fire Safety Standards and certain city ordinances (including a Knox Box requirement in all commercial occupancies). The State Minimum Standards can be found here.
Plans Review – Any changes to the life safety systems (sprinklers, alarms/detectors, egress components, etc.) in a commercial occupancy require a plans submittal and approval by the Fire Marshal’s Plan Review Official and should be submitted/approved prior to a request for inspection.
Contractors should build according to the approved plans. Any substantive variances in the approved Life Safety Plans during construction will require a resubmitted and review of the changes.
Required Inspections – Fire inspections can run concurrently with the Building Department inspections and will include:
Scheduling Fire Marshal Inspections – The inspections required by the Fire Marshal’s Office are coordinated by the same permit technician as the Building Department, so they should be scheduled in accordance with the Building Department guidelines. Other than scheduling inspections, any special inquiries or concerns can be directed to the Fire Marshal at 678-242-2604 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
