Apartment and Multi-Family Housing Safety

Multi-family dwellings pose a significant life-safety risk due to the number of occupants living under one roof, and fires in multi-family dwellings can have catastrophic results. As a result, the Greenville City Fire Department is working to spread the “Fire is Everyone’s Fight” message to all multi-family developments in the city through its Multi-family Fire Compliance Program. 

The program is designed to ensure that every multi-family dwelling in the city is in compliance with the adopted fire codes and that fire protection systems are being kept in good working order.
