Business Assistance Unit
Operating a business presents many challenges, as a business owner you may be responsible for complying with Federal, State, and local regulations.These regulations can range from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to the International Fire Code (IFC). Many companies do not have the resources or the time to keep abreast of these complex and ever changing regulations.
The Tucson Fire Department Business Assistance Program was created to assist small to medium size businesses understand and follow the International Fire Code as adopted by the City of Tucson. In addition to these regulations the Business Assistance Program team has arranged to act as a liaison with the various agencies that may have an impact on your business.
Through this free program, your business can receive non-regulatory assistance ranging from answering questions over the phone to individual visits to your facility.
Because the program is separate from the enforcement units within the Tucson Fire Department, violation field notices will not be issued (except for imminent fire hazards). Our free on-site visits will allow our assistance personnel to identify potential problems before they become an issue with the various regulatory agencies.
If there are any regulatory concerns our assistance people will be able to direct your company to the right agency that will be able to provide you with advice.
The Business Assistance Unit has arranged for experts in:
IFC (International Fire Code)
OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration)
EPA (Environmental Protection Agency)
DOT (Department of Transportation)
IBC (International Building Code)
to offer assistance in a non-regulatory capacity to help your business maintain compliance.
