Home Safety Surveys

The front of a beautiful home.
Upon request, your home will be inspected for any conditions that may be considered a fire or life safety hazard. These inspections will be tailored to fit your family’s specific situation.

No Cost or Fines
There is no cost for the Home Safety Survey Program and no fines are assessed if any hazardous or dangerous conditions are found.

Eligible Residents
This program is for all residents in the Cosumnes Fire Department District.

Survey Findings & Goals
The survey will provide a safety record for the homeowner. This public education program aims to encourage life safety, prevent fires, prevent injuries and improve occupant awareness of existing conditions and hazards.

Survey Method
Personnel will assess your home’s general safety and vulnerability to fire by asking questions about: fire escape plan and exit drills in the home, safe storage of flammable materials and smoke alarm placement and maintenance.

If there are children in the home, the Survey Team will also discuss: keeping medicines, cleaning fluids and sharp objects in a latched or locked cabinet or drawer, keeping window blind and drapery cords secured and assessing general safety precautions to prevent accidents and injuries.
