The Fire Prevention division serves the public by providing fire and life safety inspections, community education and investigation to help prevent fires, enhance public safety in all buildings and improve emergency responders' ability to manage an incident. By doing this, we help achieve a safe, vibrant and economically sustainable city.
Note: During the pandemic, the city is still performing requested inspections, but our staff will not enter areas where social distancing and safety cannot be achieved or if they observe someone displaying concerning symptoms. Contractors or owners requesting an inspection must notify us in advance if anyone on the jobsite or in the building area where the inspection will occur has experienced COVID-19-related symptoms. We can then determine if it is safe for our staff to perform the inspection with or without personal protective equipment.
