- Milton fire engine companies are now conducting bi-yearly life safety inspections of businesses, schools and non-residential occupancies, said Milton Fire Marshal Matt Marietta, so expect to see them in the community. "This helps to promote public safety in our community, ensures basic code compliance and also allows the firefighters who protect Milton's businesses to become familiar with their layouts and hazards, so they are better prepared to respond to an emergency should something unfortunate occur," said Marietta.

Among other things, firefighters are looking for working emergency lights (push the test button to make sure they are operational), properly lighted exit signs, current annual inspection tags on all fire extinguishers and accessible emergency exits. If you have any questions about this inspection process, contact Marietta at 678-242-2570 or
