I own an apartment building. How often must it be inspected?
The State of Connecticut General Statue Title 29 Chapter 541, Section 29-305 mandates that each local fire marshal shall inspect or cause to be inspected at least once each calendar year and as often as necessary in the interest of public safety all apartment buildings within their jurisdiction. A pamphlet was created by your local Fire Marshal’s Office explaining the City of Bristol Fire Marshal’s Apartment Building Inspection Program.

The pamphlet explains the objective, procedure, most commonly asked questions, procedures to change an apartment building to a two family residence, and procedure for building permits for fire code updates. This is a must read for existing apartment building owners and future owners. A copy can be obtained by calling (860) 584-7964 ext. 8102.More Information
