A message from the Office of the State Fire Marshal
This message applies to Residential Board and Care AND Assisted Living Communities. This does not apply to CMS Certified Facilities (SNF’s)

Due to the Governor’s Executive Order that covered your facility expiring, and working in conjunction with Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services, we have added your facility back on to our annual fire inspection list. For the safety of your facility staff and residents, as well as our staff, we would like to conduct your inspection virtually. Our inspector will contact you to schedule the inspection and explain the virtual inspection process. If a virtual inspection is not possible, our inspector will schedule an in-person inspection with your staff.

If you have any questions or concerns you can contact Ashley Rogers at Ashley.Rogers@ks.gov
