Safety inspections by a fire official will help keep your business running smoothly by preventing hazards and making a safer environment for your business, employees and our community. The City of Wayne has adopted the most recent additions of the International Fire Code (IFC) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
Each inspection will encompass, but is not limited to, items such as fire protection equipment, egress, housekeeping, posting, plus electrical and mechanical items. An initial inspection will be conducted and if violations are found, the business owner will be left with a list of violations and location of each to be corrected. A follow up inspection will be rescheduled at time of initial inspection.

A plan review is an evaluation of design plans prior to construction or reconstruction to address concerns that could be an issue in the construction process. In Wayne, you are required by City Ordinance to submit your site plans for review to the Community Development Department with any development by construction of an additional building on improved land, or the reconstruction of at least 30% of the total structure or any facade.
