Fire Origin and Cause Investigations
Fire investigation, sometimes referred to as origin and cause investigation, is the analysis of fire-related incidents. After firefighters extinguish a fire, an investigation is launched to determine the origin and cause of the fire or explosion. Investigations of such incidents require a systematic approach and knowledge of fire science and NFPA 921.The City of Naples Fire-Rescue Department has three certified Fire Investigators.

Fire Inspection and Code Enforcement
Fire Inspectors identify hazards and take mitigating action with the goal of educating occupants and protecting lives and property. The City of Naples Fire-Rescue Department has 4 dedicated fire inspectors.  Two inspectors inspect existing occupancies using a grid system.

Two fire inspectors work in the Building Department at 295 Riverside Circle reviewing plans and performing inspections on fire separation, fire sprinkler, fire suppression and fire alarm construction permitted through the City.

All multifamily construction/alteration will require a fire separation inspection (184/188) to ensure that the one hour tenant separation is preserved or restored. Commercial construction will require this inspection for occupancy separation.

These inspectors also perform flow tests requested through the City’s permitting department.
