Fire codes, permits, and inspections

We work in partnership with residents, businesses, building owners and managers to ensure the safety of employees, customers, and members of the public.

Codes and bylaws


Food truck inspection

As with any food service establishment, mobile food trucks have open flames, hot equipment, electrical connections, cooking oils, propane, flammable liquids, cleaning chemicals, engine oil and combustible products which provide all the ingredients for a fire ready to spread out of control.

A fire can devastate your mobile food business, leading to lost revenues, potential permanent closure or worse, personal injury or death. Food trucks (Mobile Cooking Operations) require inspections and approvals to be able to operate in the Town of Strathmore.

Fireworks and pyrotechnics

Consumer fireworks are often discharged at special events such as Canada Day, Diwali, New Year’s Eve, and other private celebratory events. To sell, purchase or set off fireworks in Strathmore, you must have a valid fireworks permit. While there is no charge for obtaining a fireworks permit, there are penalties for discharging without one or for being in violation of a fireworks permit regulation.

Special events

Events like concerts, rodeos, street festivals, fundraisers, large public celebrations, and fairs etc. occur throughout the year in Strathmore. Depending on what type of event you are organizing, you will have to get a variety of permits and meet a number of safety regulations. We encourage anyone who is part of an event to be familiar with the event's fire safety practices and procedures.
