Fire Inspections

Fire/Life Safety inspections are conducted on an annual basis. Inspections will also be conducted in response to a complaint or a direct request from the business owner.


Inspectors will not collect or demand any payments from you or your representative at the time of the inspection. An invoice will be mailed out by the City of Watsonville. The form you receive at the time of the inspection will be a copy of your inspection and an inspection fee notice.
