The Belvidere Fire Department has instituted a new process for service providers who inspect and test fire protection systems. All compliant & non-compliant fire protection systems test reports are required to be sent to The Belvidere Fire Department electronically by your respective organization via The Compliance Engine’s online system.

The Belvidere Fire Department is dedicated to delivering 100% compliance with our adopted Fire Code. This web-based service will aggregate, track and streamline the collection of compliance data of our jurisdiction’s systems. Property owners will receive timely proactive notifications of their testing requirements, and the Belvidere Fire Department will gain the ability to better mitigate the risk in our community by improving public safety to our citizens.

All service providers who inspect or test fire protection systems within Belvidere’s jurisdiction are required to register and submit all test, inspection and service reports via The Compliance Engine. All reports must be submitted in accordance with the testing schedule and requirements outlined in our adopted fire code.

Benefits to you:

  • Increases market opportunity and demand for your fire protection services
  • Ensures all reports arrive, affording you the ability to track our department’s follow up
  • Enhances maintenance revenue and timeliness of deficiency corrections
  • Improves customer retention with renewal notifications identifying you as company of record
  • Minimizes non licensed contractors from working in your market

This proven process requires the service provider pay a nominal filing fee at the time of submittal. There is no fee to register your company with The Compliance Engine. Once registered, pricing is viewable under the AHJ icon in The Compliance Engine. If you are a licensed fire protection system contractor and are not currently registered with Brycer, please do so at

We look forward to partnering with you to better protect and serve our community.
