Why must inspections be done?

Besides being required by the Connecticut General Statutes, for many businesses that are licensed by a local or state agency, they are required to provide documentation as to the safe conditions that will allow them to operate without posing a hazard to the public. Without such documentation, their license to operate their business may not be renewed. Should violations of the Connecticut Fire and Life Safety Code be found, said business must correct the violations in a given amount of time. Normal, thirty days (30) are provided to the business or building owner to make corrections and comply with the fire code. The time provided is at the discretion of the Fire Marshal or his designee, depending on the nature of the violation. Violations, such as blocked egress, fire protection system violations or overcrowding may demand closure of a business until such time that these immediate problems are corrected.
