The City of Lemon Grove Fire Department Fire Prevention Bureau provides a wide range of prevention services including fire

safety inspections, plan review, and construction field inspections.

 Beware of Fraudulent Business Inspections

Fire safety inspections are provided to businesses in the community based on code requirements, requests from other governmental agencies, and when initiating a new business in the City. It is the goal of the Lemon Grove Fire Department to provide a safe environment for those who live and work in the City.

If you need to schedule a fire safety inspection please feel free to contact our business office at 619-825-3835.

Plan Review

Plan review for projects in the City is forwarded to the fire department through the City’s Community Development Department. If you are required to install a fire protection system for your project, those plans may be delivered directly to the fire department for review.

Plans submitted directly to the fire department will need to be picked up at City Hall as the fire department does not accept payments for plan review at its office.

Field Inspections

Required construction field inspections may be scheduled by contacting the fire department business office at 619-825-3835. It is highly recommended to schedule field inspections at least 48 hours in advance, though other requests may be honored based on time available.



Weed Abatement

As of February 2007, all weed complaints in the City should be directed to the Lemon Grove Fire Department. Inspectors from the Fire Prevention Bureau will follow up on all complaints received. We can be reached by calling 619-825-3835 or at our administrative offices located at 7853 Central Avenue, Lemon Grove.


 The Lemon Grove Municipal Code defines nuisance weeds as:

 "All weeds, dry grasses, dead shrubs, dead trees, stubble, brush, sagebrush, chaparral, weeds which bear seeds of a winged or downy nature, and any other brush or weeds which by reason of their size, manner of growth, and location constitute a fire hazard to any building, improvements, crops or other property, and weeds and grasses which, when dry, will in reasonable probability endanger the public safety by creating a fire or other safety hazard, any of which, are growing on the streets, sidewalks, or private property in the city are declared to be a public nuisance."

The Fire Prevention Bureau will enforce all applicable codes as they relate to the safety of the citizens of Lemon Grove.
