§ 10-1022  Fire inspection in contract areas. The chief officer of the  fire department or fire company which  is  to  furnish  fire  protection  service  to  a  village under a contract for fire protection may inspect  (1) any public building and (2) with  the  consent  of  the  owner,  any  privately-owned  building,  located  within  the  village or the portion  thereof required to be protected under such contract, for fire  hazards,  or  such  chief  officer  may  delegate  such  power of inspection to an  officer or member of such department or company.    The term "building," as used  in  this  section  does  not  include  a  multiple  dwelling  which  may  be  inspected by such fire department or  company under and pursuant to the  provisions  of  subdivision  four  of  section three hundred three of the multiple residence law.    The  failure  of  any  such officer or member to discover and properly  report any such fire hazards or his neglect or omission to perform  such  duties  shall not subject him, his fire department, fire company, or the  city, village, fire district or town in  which  or  of  which  he  is  a  fireman to any civil or other liability. Any such fire officer or member  shall not be liable civilly for any act or acts done by him as a fireman  in  the  performance  of  such  duties,  except for wilful negligence or  malfeasance, but the provisions of this section shall  not  relieve  any  such city, village, fire district, town, or fire company from liability,  if  any,  for the negligent or wrongful acts of the officer or member in  the actual performance of such duty.
