Fire Inspections Services

Fire Inspection Services' mission is to help reduce the negative impact from fire and other related emergencies through community education, focused hazard mitigation, and code enforcement. The division is charged with issuing key permits related to fire protection and prevention and performing plan review of new and rehabbed properties to ensure safety and adherence to the Minnesota State Fire Code.

We've transitioned our license, permit, and registration applications and payments to drop-off only. They will be processed weekly, if possible.

You can drop-off your application or payment using the drop box in the hallway outside of Minneapolis Development Review on the 3rd floor of the Public Service Center. Paper copies of applications are available in the hallway. Please make sure that all applications are completely filled out. If you're making a payment, please fill out the credit card information completely, and include property addresses in the memo line of checks. We can also accept payments through secure fax to (612) 673-3699.

If you have questions, please call 612-673-3000.

In addition, Fire Inspection Services works in partnership with the Minneapolis Fire Department to ensure that commercial properties and high occupancy dwelling units (structures with 4 or more housing units) are safe and meet the requirements of the Minnesota State Fire Code and local building and/or Housing Maintenance Codes.

Finally, Fire Inspection Services conducts regular inspections and issues permits to business owners who have hazardous chemicals or materials stored on their property. This critical program helps ensure the safety of the City’s residents, visitors, and our own first responders (police, fire, EMS) when they are called to assist.
