Fire Inspections

The Waubeka Fire Department has three Wisconsin State Certified Fire Inspectors that conduct approximately 120 inspections per year in the Town Of Fredonia. The three inspectors have a total of 132 years as volunteers in the fire service.

The state of Wisconsin requires all fire departments to conduct semi-annual fire inspections of all commercial buildings and residential buildings of three families or more. When a department completes all of the required semi-annual fire inspections, they receive what is called “2 percent dues” from the state, which acts as another source of revenue for the department. The dues are based on fire insurance premiums collected from the residents and businesses of the Town of Fredonia.

Maintaining up to date contact information for all of our commercial buildings is not only important for fire inspections, but also if an emergency occurs at that building. If you recently moved into or purchased a building in our service area, please contact us so we can update the contacts in our system and start the emergency pre-planning process for the building.
