The Department of Codes & Life Safety is responsible for the Health, Safety and
Welfare of the community and our visitors. This is achieved through the
administration and enforcement of the Building, Electrical, Plumbing,
Mechanical, Property Maintenance and Fire Protection Codes. Also, the department
administers and enforces the East Whiteland Township Zoning Ordinance.
The administration of these codes includes reviewing applications for permits,
examining the accompanying plans and documents for compliance with the code,
issuing applicable permit(s), conducting inspections and issuing the Certificate
of Occupancy upon the completion of the project.
The Department of Codes
& Life Safety works with the East
Whiteland Volunteer Fire Association
, Police Department, Public Works, Fire
Marshal and the appointed Township Engineer.
In addition, the department
augments the volunteer firefighters and emergency medical technicians with
career firefighter/EMTs 24 hours a day seven days a week.
