Keeping Your Fire Escape in Compliance

Ideally, you’ll never have to use your building’s fire escape. But national fire code requires your fire escape be inspected every five years. In some jurisdictions, such as the City of Seattle, inspection even requires certification of structural integrity by a structural engineer. We make the inspection process easy by working with structural engineers and carrying out all the relevant tests. We’ll also contact you when it’s time to make your next inspection appointment. Partner with AAA Fire and you can rest easy that your building is up to code and ready in case of emergency.

When You Partner with AAA Fire Protection

Your fire escape inspection will be carried out by one or two AAA technicians and a structural engineer, if you’re in a jurisdiction where their certification is required. You can expect your inspection to take between 2 and 8 hours depending on the size of your building’s fire escape.

During inspection, our team will look for anything that might jeopardize your fire escape’s stability or load-bearing ability, such as rust, loose handrails, loose parts, dislocation from the building, missing stairs, and more.

Some jurisdictions also require that a full load test be completed. After your inspection is complete, we will file a certification of inspection on your behalf. Your escape will then be good to go until your next inspection is due – which our team will remind you of when the time comes.

We've used AAA Fire Protection for longer than the 27 years I've worked here. We don't have to remember - they show up when it's time to service our fire extinguishers, replace them as needed, and make other suggestions as needed. We've been very happy with them!

I've used AAA at most of the multifamily communities I've worked at in Seattle and have been quite happy to work with their teams. The techs are always a delight to have on site, their support team members have been very helpful over the phone, and the office personnel are professional and courteous. They keep us on track with our inspections and help us to make sure our staff and residents are safe. Thanks for being great to work with!
