The Fire Prevention Division is responsible for Fire Prevention
activities that include:
- Code Enforcement.
- Plan Review.
- Fire and Arson Investigation.
- Public Education.
- Hazardous Materials.
Career firefighters conduct periodic fire prevention
inspections in all occupancies (except one- and two-family
dwellings) within their response district. Buildings are inspected
for the purposes of enforcing the fire and life safety
regulations, familiarizing firefighters with the building and
educating occupants in good fire safety practices.
The Plan Review Office ensures that submitted plans for new
construction and renovation comply with current Codes. Upon
completion of the building, an inspector will inspect the project
to insure that final construction is in accordance with the Code.
Fire and Arson Investigation
The Fire Marshal and fire investigators are trained to
investigate the cause of fires in the community. Fires determined
to be suspicious or incendiary are jointly investigated with the
assistance of our Police Department.
