Licensee


A licensee is one who comes onto another's land with permission or privilege.

An owner/occupier has a duty to warn of or make safe a known dangerous condition that isn't obvious.

An owner/occupier has a duty of reasonable care for his active operations for protection of licensees once discovered and those whose presence might be reasonably anticipated.

Police officers and firefighters are usually classified as licensees.
