Code Enforcement

The City of Mount Vernon and the Mount Vernon Fire Department are required to enforce the International Fire Code (IFC) in all residential and commercial occupancies, as adopted by the State of New York.

Our Fire Prevention Division coordinate daily fire/ life safety inspections along with our Fire Suppression Units, other city agencies such as the Building Department and Assessors Office, and Work Groups such as the CMV Quality of Life Response Team, to ensure the safety of new construction coming into our city as well as the legacy construction and occupancies within our borders.

To schedule a home inspection for a ONE and/or TWO Family residential occupancy please email our Fire Prevention office at: with the subject line "ONE/ TWO FAMILY FIRE INSPECTION" or contact our office directly at 914. 665.2611.

Fire inspection questions, concerns and issues should be directed to our Fire Prevention Office.
