2010 Annual Comprehensive Fire Safety, Casualty, and Sanitation Inspection Results


Certified Fire Safety Inspectors of the BPS Office of Regulatory Compliance perform an unannounced annual inspection of each educational facility in the district.  Deficiencies noted at each site are re-inspected to assure compliance.  Each inspection was performed in conjunction with local/municipal fire authority inspectors.

BPS uses the following Statutes, Administrative Codes, and Industry Standards to establish a process for conducting annual comprehensive fire safety, casualty safety, and sanitation inspections of existing BPS facilities:

Florida Statute 1013.12 – Casualty, Safety, Sanitation, and Fire Safety Standards and Inspection of Property

Florida Administrative Code 69A-58 – Fire Safety in Educational Facilities

Florida Administrative Rule 6A-2.0010 – State Requirements for Educational Facilities (SREF) – Chapter 5, Existing Facilities

National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Fire Prevention Code 1 & Life Safety Code 101

A paper copy of the entire 521 page report is available for review in the Board Secretary's Office.  An electronic copy of the report was also provided to the Superintendent and Board Members.

A copy of the Fire Safety type inspection data from this report was submitted to the State Fire Marshal's office on June 30, 2010 as required by FAC 69A-58.   

Capital dollars will be used to take corrective actions, based on the findings in this report.
