Fire & Home Occupancy Inspection
The goal of the Fire Marshal's Office is for all businesses, operations, occupancies, and events in The City of Royse City to be safe, successful, and in accordance with the Fire Code. Fire Inspections play a key part in meeting this goal.
Fire inspectors inspect new construction of buildings and structures and all existing commercial buildings and structures to search for fire hazards and to ensure that federal, state, and local fire codes are met. They also test and inspect fire protection systems and fire extinguishing equipment to ensure proper operation. Violations are documented and require a re-inspection to ensure compliance with the code requirements. Non-compliance with requirements is subject to citation and legal action.
Fire Inspectors maintain a Texas Commission of Fire Protection Certification and take continuing education code-related classes to maintain their certification and skill level.
If you have questions regarding a fire inspection or a possible fire code violation please contact us.

Home Occupancy Inspection
Per City Ordinance 06-12- 541 a home occupancy inspection (HO) is required for any pre-existing home that changes occupants. The HO inspection fee of $75 is non-refundable. The inspection is performed by the City Fire Inspector to ensure the place of residence meets the current code. The HO inspection is valid for 60 days after the residence passes inspection. If the home remains unoccupied after 60 days, a new inspection will be required. Payment and the scheduling of the inspection will be done at the time of the water account set up.
