Fire Prevention

FD EJCooper Fire Sta

"There is no honor in extinguishing a fire that could have been prevented."

The Fire Department Prevention Division is responsible for administering fire safety education, determining fire cause, inspecting high hazard occupancies and enforcing fire code. The Fire Department's fire prevention programs are largely responsible for public awareness on prevention. These programs check code compliance and proper safety standards.

The Fire Prevention Division is staffed with one Assistant Chief, Gary Blocker and one Inspector/Investigator, Joseph Ard. In addition to the bureau staff, all personnel assigned to the Operational Division carry a great deal of responsibility for assisting in the fire prevention mission of the department.
