Home Inspection
Foster Family Homes & Group Day-Care Homes Self Evaluation Checklists
Those of you who are needing fire inspections of the home for foster care or adoption purposes may be required to have a fire inspection of your home as part of the process. The Allen Fire Department has adopted the Texas State Fire Marshal's Office policy on these types of inspections. This policy allows the family's adoption/foster agency to perform a self evaluation by using a checklist provided by the State Fire Marshal's Office.

These checklists are provided below to assist the foster family home operator and group day care home operator in maintaining a fire safe environment. The checklists are based on the requirements of the State Fire Marshal rule for fire safety inspection as adopted from the National Fire Protection Association Life Safety Code 101; 2000 edition.

Additional fire safety information is provided for your use. Please download the appropriate self evaluation and additional information. Read all information and instructions and perform the evaluation.

These checklists and information sheets are in Portable Document Format (PDF). To view and print PDF files, the Adobe Acrobat® Reader must be installed on your computer. If not you will need to download and install the Adobe Acrobat® Reader, which is available at no cost in formats suitable for most PCs. Go to the Adobe Acrobat® site where you will be able to download the latest version of this utility before proceeding.

The Allen Fire Marshal's Office does not provide home inspections for Foster Care. Please contact your agency for inspection accommodations.
