Departments


Fire Code Enforcement and Investigation

Fire Inspection staff is responsible for code compliance in new and existing buildings throughout the community.

This includes:

  • Reviewing plans
  • Issuing permits 
  • Conducting inspections


Staff investigates the origin and cause of every fire that they respond to. The Deputy Fire Marshal, along with the investigation team, is responsible for the investigation of any fire.

  • With significant loss
  • Involving a fatality or injury 
  • Involving juveniles 
  • Intentionally set 
  • Accidentally set


Data compiled by the department is shared with state agencies in hopes of identifying similar trends in fires that can be resolved through education, control, and even product recall. 


A good place to check on fire-related product recalls is the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
