Knox County Tennessee

Licensed Facility Inspection Program

Knox County Fire Prevention Bureau inspectors receive requests from the State of Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities (mental health facilities) and the Department of Human Services (day care facilities) for annual licensure inspections on these facilities. The inspectors conduct these life safety and fire prevention inspections and report their findings to the requesting agencies. When the facilities have made the required corrections and when the required reinspections have been completed, the fire bureau notifies the state for approval.
