The safety of our citizens, visitors, buildings and natural resources are of utmost importance to the sustainability of our city. Ashland Fire & Rescue enforces the Oregon Fire Code and associated amendments as adopted by the Ashland Municipal Code to ensure this safety through inspections in government and business buildings, multi-family residential buildings and schools.
Some code requirements are generic to all buildings, and some are specific depending upon the use of the building. To view fire code requirements common to all buildings, click here.
