IMPORTANT NOTICE About Submitting Inspection Reports
Public School Inspection Program
If you are one of the local jurisdictions that is participating in the public school inspection program we want to thank you for this participation and your effort to be active in your community’s public schools. We think this program provides many additional benefits for the departments that participate by getting to know the school staff, providing an opportunity to exchange information and identify priorities that are important not only for the safety of the school but the response of emergency services.
In our effort to improve the tracking of these public school inspections and in accordance with the Illinois Administrative Code, Title 41, Section 111.90 b) which requires that inspection reports for public schools to be submitted to the Fire Prevention Division of the Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) we are requiring these reports to be submitted electronically. This submission requirement is in addition to the requirement to submit inspection reports to the appropriate Regional Office of Education or for schools in Cook County the Intermediate Service Center
Beginning September 1, 2016 local fire departments that perform public school inspections shall submit their inspection reports through the Mobile Eyes Inspection Portal. The links below provide documents which explain the process for setting up your login account along with instructions on how to submit your inspections. The Mobile Eyes Help Desk (866-442-9002) is available from 8 AM to 9 PM for those that experience trouble with this process.
This internet based portal is no cost to the users and will be easier and less expensive than printing a copy and mailing in reports. It saves us time and manpower needed to process mailed paper reports and puts them into an electronic document storage system.
Once again we appreciate the efforts of the local fire departments that do these inspections and hope this new process will make things easier for the local inspector and our office.
