New process for providers who test and inspect fire protection systems:

In an effort to reduce the 3500 false fire alarms our crews respond to each year, the West Metro Fire Protection District has implemented a new process for providers who test and inspect fire protection systems.  Effective February 15, 2019 all compliant & non-compliant fire protection systems test reports are required to be sent to the West Metro Fire Protection District electronically by your respective organization via The Compliance Engine’s online system.

This web based service will aggregate, track and streamline the collection of compliance data of our jurisdiction’s systems. Property owners will receive timely proactive notifications of their testing requirements, and the West Metro Fire Protection District will gain the ability to better mitigate the risk in our community by improving public safety to our citizens.

All service providers who inspect or test fire protection systems within the West Metro Fire Protection District’s jurisdiction are required to register and submit all test, inspection and service reports via The Compliance Engine. All reports must be submitted in accordance with the testing schedule and requirements outlined in the adopted fire code.

This vigilant process requires the service provider to pay a filing fee of $25.00 per inspection report at the time of submittal. There is no fee to register a company with The Compliance Engine. Once registered, pricing is viewable under West Metro Fire Protection District icon in The Compliance Engine. If you are a licensed fire protection system contractor and are not currently registered, please do so at

We look forward to partnering with our businesses and inspection companies to better protect and serve our community.
