Foster Family Homes Self Evaluation Checklist and Other Fire Safety Information

The Self Evaluation checklist below is provided to assist the foster family home operator in maintaining a fire-safe environment. The checklist is based on the requirements of the State Fire Marshal rule for fire safety inspection as adopted from the National Fire Protection Association Life Safety Code 101; 2009 edition. Local building and fire codes may differ in the requirements.

Use of this checklist by the owner does not substitute for a professional fire safety inspection by the local authority where one is available.

In an effort to better inform persons providing in-home foster care, and fire inspection officials, across the state, the State Fire Marshal, in COMMISSIONER'S BULLETIN #B-0046-07 (November 12, 2007), offers information related to compliance with fire alarm systems, fire sprinkler systems and fire inspection requirements.

Additional home fire safety information is provided for your use. Please download the self-evaluation checklist and additional fire safety information. Read all information and instructions and perform the evaluation.
