    Fire Prevention
          Can I have a charcoal grill on my balcony?
Charcoal grills are not permitted on any deck, porch, balcony, or any other portion of a building.


          Do all municipalities enforce the same Fire Safety Code?
Yes; the Borough of Sayreville enforces the same Code used by all municipalities in the State of New Jersey.


          The Fire Inspector was just here when my new building was completed; why do I have another fire inspection within six or seven months?
The Fire Inspection that was performed when you first completed your building or space was performed by the Fire Sub-Code who enforces fire safety for all new work. The inspection that is performed by the Fire Official (sometimes referred to as Fire Marshall) is a maintenance inspection. In most circumstances the Fire Official will visit your place of business once a year.


          What does the code say about propane fired grills?
Portable LP-gas cooking equipment such as barbecue grills shall not be stored or used:

• on any porch, balcony or any other portion of a building;
• within any room or space of a building;
• within five feet of any combustible exterior wall;
• opening in any wall;
• under any building overhang.

These rules do not apply to R-3 structures (one- or two-family dwelling units separated by a 2-hour fire separation assembly).


          Where can I obtain a fire report?
Fire reports are obtained from the Sayreville Fire Prevention Office located at 49 Dolan Street.


          Where is the Fire Official’s office located?
The Fire Official’s office is located at 49 Dolan Street, next to the Mickey Sedlak Recreation Building.
