Fire Inspection

Ripon Fire District personnel are responsible for inspecting the 250 buildings including apartments, motels/hotels, businesses, truck stops, and other commercial buildings within district boundaries. This practice ensures that safety measures are maintained to guarantee the safety of the people who live, work, shop, or dine in Ripon, or otherwise occupy these facilities.

Business inspection activities conducted district personnel include, but are not necessarily limited to, clear routes for egress, proper exit signage, operational fire detection and suppression systems, properly maintained fire extinguishers, and the presence of possible electrical hazards.

Not only do these inspections help insure the safety of employees and visitors, but they offer a valuable opportunity for District personnel to interact with business owners in non-emergency situations and to familiarize personnel with the layout of buildings in the community.
