Fire Inspections

*In an abundance of caution, the City of Geneva Operating Permit Inspection Program has been postponed until further notice. All currently scheduled inspections and re-inspections have been cancelled at this time. The Office of the Fire Marshal will contact property owners to reschedule their inspection appointments when the program resumes. Please contact our office at 315-828-6570 or with any questions.*

Per the City of Geneva Municipal Code, all Commercial (including, but not limited to, Public Assembly) and Multi-Family (3-Unit and above) Residential Properties located in the City of Geneva are required to:


1) Undergo regular Fire Safety & Property Maintenance Inspections by the Geneva Fire Department’s career staff;

2) Be issued and maintain a valid Operating Permit.

Approximately one [1] month prior to a property’s Operating Permit expiration date, a letter will be mailed to the Property Owner as a reminder to schedule an inspection appointment.

As a reminder: a property owner or authorized representative must be present during an inspection.
