The Town of Union also conducts fire inspections in multi-family, commercial, and industrial buildings. Public assembly and public buildings are also inspected. These inspections are conducted on an annual basis to assure compliance with the New York State Uniform Fire Prevention Code. Buildings other than public assembly are inspected once every three years. Common areas in multi-family buildings are inspected, however, individual apartments are not inspected unless Code Staff receives a request from either the building owner or the tenant.
