Annual Fire Surveys

From February through April, business owners and citizens will see the Anniston Fire Department in all parts of the City conducting annual commercial surveys. These surveys are conducted by members of the AFD Operations Division, on a block-by-block basis, with the intent to provide business/occupants the opportunity to evaluate fire and life safety systems and components, and develop safe business practices for all of Anniston.
The visit will also allow AFD to conduct pre-fire planning for future emergency response. The only properties exempt from the survey are single family dwelling and duplex building.
The commercial surveys are conducted as time permits during a fire station’s 24 hour shift and not routinely scheduled on an appointment basis. The commercial survey program provides fire safety personnel an opportunity to meet business owners/occupants of the community which they serve. It is our goal to provide you excellent service identifying those activities, processes, or construction flaws which can lead to unwanted fires, and other types of accidents or emergencies.
If further information is required about this program, the Fire Prevention Division can be contacted at 256-231-7650.
