The Pell City Fire Department is working on a new partnership with local businesses for 2020.
The department will ring in the new year with its new Fire and Life Safety Program. This program will mainly entail the inspections of all business in the city during the new year.
Ahead of these inspections, the city is also asking that businesses complete a few minor steps that will help both them and the department in the long run.
Fire Chief Tim Kurzejeski said the new program will help the department streamline its process.
As part of this program, the city is asking for businesses to update their contact information.
Fire Marshal Caleb Walker said keeping current contact information is a highly important step.
“We sometimes don’t even have up-to-date contact information,” he explained.
