The Hays Fire Department Fire Inspection's program main purpose is to detect and prevent conditions that may be hazardous to public life and property. The Fire Inspectors work to reduce the frequency and effects of fire through education, code administration, enforcement and plan review.
The Fire Inspectors are responsible for conducting fire inspections of commercial buildings, industrial buildings, businesses, restaurants, schools, churches, multi-family housing, daycare centers and other structures open to the public. The majority of these inspections are completed on an annual basis.

The Fire Inspectors are nationally certified and receive ongoing training.
