Is your L.A. building overdue for a fire inspection? Search our database to find out.
The Los Angeles Fire Department has failed to conduct timely safety inspections of thousands of apartments, schools, churches, hotels and other buildings across the city, a Times investigation found.
The Times obtained this list of buildings overdue for inspection through the California Public Records Act. It includes virtually every type of structure – crowded residential towers, hospitals, McDonald’s outlets, hair salons. Some properties have multiple overdue inspections. Inspections are not required for single-family homes.
Officials say a few of the records listed here may be out of date due to poor record keeping at the fire agency. For the most current information contact the LAFD's Fire Prevention Bureau at (213) 978-3570.
