Fire Prevention
Fire Prevention Division
The Fire Department utilizes a line battalion chief as a fire marshal to oversee the Fire Prevention Division. The full fire prevention program includes:
  • Development, interpretation, and enforcement of codes
  • Review of construction plans
  • Testing of fire protection systems
  • Abatement of identified hazards  
  • Educational programs for the public

A key component of this effort is vegetation management (on both public and private lands) to minimize the effects of a wildland / urban interface fire, and resulting structural conflagration. A fire prevention officer provides code enforcement, specialized inspections, and coordination of the department’s line and staff prevention duties.
