Many fires can be prevented through fire inspections and code enforcement. Fire inspections are performed by certified code enforcement officers on a predetermined schedule. Chapter 148 of the Massachusetts General Laws  and 527 CMR serve as the required compliance code and regulations, along with other local building and safety codes.

Other inspection responsibilities include issuing permits for different areas including smoke detectors, permits for above ground and underground tank installation and removal, fireworks, blasting, tent structures and inspections of facilities selling alcoholic beverages as well as rooming/boarding houses.
