Assessment of Damage
The Fire Department will notify the Village Building Inspector if your home has sustained damage as the result of a fire. The Building Inspector will conduct an inspection of your home to assess the extent of the fire damage and to determine what permits are required to repair it. Before attempting any repairs, please contact the Village of Hanover Park.
Often the Fire Department must have the utility services shut off or disconnected as a safety precaution and also to prevent further damage to the structure and its contents. The utility companies will not restore your utilities until the repairs are approved and clearance has been issued by the Village Building Inspector.
