Business Self-Fire Inspection Program

Medford Fire-Rescue's Self-Fire Inspection Program is designed for smalllight hazard commercial occupancies that do not have a high occupant load. Light hazard occupancies are locations where there is a low amount of combustible materials within the occupied space, including furnishings, decorations, and contents. These occupancies may include:  Small business or professional offices, small retail shops, small personal service shops (Barber, beauty shops, etc.), small apartment complexes with 3 or more units, etc.  If your business fits into this type of description, you are eligible to perform your own self-fire inspection(s) which may decrease the interval an actual fire department inspection is conducted.  You can perform these inspections as often as you desire, however, a reminder will be E-mailed to you on a yearly basis after the last inspection was completed.  Occupancies not counted in this program, even though they will be visited by the Medford Fire Department on a regular basis, are also encouraged to perform self-fire inspections.

Performing self-fire inspections will promote a safer year-round environment for your business and the public. Consider the following about workplace fires:
  • There are approximately 75,000 fires annually that cost businesses over $2 billion
  • These fires kill more than 200 and injure more than 5,000 people each year
  • 45% of businesses never reopen after a fire due to the high cost of recovery and repairs
Below are links to the Self-Fire Inspection Form and other related safety information.  Thank you for your participation!
