Commercial Fire Safety Inspections

The Fire Chief and Deputy Fire Marshall review new construction plans for all
commercial buildings and inspect new buildings prior to occupancy in conjunction
with the Planning and Codes Department. New businesses are inspected after the
City of Tullahoma Recorder’s Office issues a business license.

Businesses that
are licensed to sell beer or wine are re-inspected annually. In addition, other
existing businesses are routinely inspected, often by request of the business
owner or a customer. The Tullahoma Fire Department endeavors to educate, advise,
and recommend actions that will maintain the minimum life and fire safety
elements as required by the Tullahoma Municipal Code.

For new construction the
2006 International Building Code, the 2006 International Fire Prevention Code,
and the
2006 Life Safety Code, along with the codes/standards or other materials they reference, have been specifically adopted under the Tullahoma Municipal Code. For existing buildings the 2006 International Existing Buildings Code and the
2006 International Property Maintenance Code, along with the codes/standards or other materials they reference, are adopted under the Tullahoma Municipal Code.
