Bureau of Prevention
Information about the divisions within the Fire Department that work on fire prevention.
The Bureau of Prevention has four major divisions: code enforcement, fire investigation, health & wellness, and public education. The code enforcement division is responsible for enforcing provisions of the fire prevention ordinance, the commercial structure carbon monoxide detector ordinance, the residential structure carbon monoxide detector ordinance, the smoke detector ordinance, and the hazardous material ordinance. Enforcement of these provisions is supported through many functions. Some of the functions include: fire protection system plan review; inspections of existing structures; review of applications for permit; and many others. These functions, as determined by the Fire Chief, are the minimal requirements to safeguard life, property, public welfare, and firefighter safety and health, from the hazards of fire and explosion.
