Fire Safety Maintenance Inspection (FSMI) Program

Initiated in 2016, the Fire Safety Maintenance Inspection (FSMI) Program supports Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency’s commitment to a safe community through protection of life, property, and the environment. The FSMI program is designed to be used by both building owners and municipal staff to ensure a transparent, predictable, and consistent inspection process.

The FSMI  Program covers multiple building types; Bar/Restaurant, Daycare, Place of Worship, and Residential Multi-Unit. It is structured to begin with a user friendly checklist followed by a detailed guide. The document is fillable, saveable, and contains bookmarks and links for quick navigation.
