Minnesota State Interagency Agreement requires that Department of Public Services provide an annual fire inspection of the 11 DOC owned Minnesota Correctional Facilities. The DPS is also responsible for inspecting all correctional facilities the commissioner of corrections is required to inspect and license and or authorize to operate throughout the state.
Search for an inspector in your area by using the State Fire Marshal's interactive mapping tool.
Correctional facilities are required by law to have fire safety and evacuation plans and conduct annual emergency evacuation drills.
