Request a Remote Video Inspection (RVI) – re-inspections only

Effective 12/1/2020, Remote Video Inspections (RVI) will be available for the re-inspection of previously issued Notices of Defects in accordance with the Fire Alarm Inspection Unit Bulletin # 11-20-2020. RVI allows inspections to occur using digital video technology, without the need for the inspector to physically be present during the inspection.
