Fire Prevention Bureau & Fire Prevention Committee

Saving lives and property through code enforcement and education.

About

It is the duty of the Fire Prevention Division to "prevent” incidents that require the response of our fire suppression personnel. It is the job and responsibility of this division to enforce fire codes and regulations, inspect and abate existing and potential fire hazards, and to recommend fire prevention standards. This makes the job of a firefighter a lot easier. 

The Fire Prevention Division also conducts year-round public education programs for the general public, schools, hospitals, industry, business, and civic and fraternal organizations.
