Before a facility can accept residents, CCL must obtain a fire clearance for the facility from the local fire inspection authority having jurisdiction in the area the facility is located. CCL submits the request for an inspection to the cognizant Fire Marshal's office. The purpose of the inspection is to verify that the physical features of the facility can safely provide for the capacity and ambulatory status of the residents the facility wishes to care for, and also notifies which rooms are approved for non-ambulatory residents. Fire clearances are required prior to obtaining certain types of waivers.
On this site, if CARR has the Fire Marshal Clearance for a particular facility, it will appear in the Facility Search as an icon identified as FMC.
