The fire prevention division continues its efforts to keep our community a safe place in which to live, work, and play.

The division has responsibility for fire code enforcement, public safety education, fire investigation, and weed and hazard abatement. Fire code enforcement continued to be a priority.

Captain Sykes manages the fire inspection program and performs all actual business inspections. The primary focus of these inspections is "enforcement through education". This commitment to proactive fire prevention activities continues to result in reducing or eliminating fire losses. A total of 360 fire inspections were conducted in 2010.
