Do I have to use the same contractor to make repairs?

The contractor that performed the inspection, testing, or maintenance may observe issues and list them as deficiencies on your inspection report. This will result in a deficiency notice being sent to the responsible party and Redmond Fire Prevention. Contact the contractor directly regarding deficiencies. It is acceptable for the repairs to be completed by a different contractor from the one that performed the initial inspection.* After the deficiencies are corrected, a “deficiency repair” report needs to be uploaded to TCE by the contractor that corrected the deficiency.

*Fire alarm repairs require a letter of authorization from the prime contractor listed on the fire alarm operational permit to perform any work on the fire alarm system.
