New Annual Fire Inspection Report Process

  1. The SED fire safety system has been updated to reflect online technologies. The updated system was launched in July 2015. The updated system will save school districts and BOCES significant time mailing large quantities of paper to the SED Office of Facilities Planning. Effective July 1, 2015, fire inspection data will be entered into SED’s Application Business Portal; after which school districts and BOCES will print their own annual certificates of occupancy.
