Fire Prevention and Public Education
The Prevention Division runs several prevention programs in addition to performing plan reviews and inspections on new commercial construction.
The Fire District has adopted the International Fire Code/2018. Plan reviews and inspections are performed on new commercial construction to insure compliance with the fire code. The District updates the fire code every 6 years.
The Prevention Division does a School Prevention program every October. We reach 1000 students a year in two school districts, 2 private schools, and several daycare centers. In addition we offer fire extinguisher training to public enities and private businesses.
The Fire District has a smoke alarm program. We will bring and install a smoke alarm in homes where residents can't afford them. We will also assist those needing help changing batteries in smoke alarms and replacing smoke alarms. Change the batteries once a year and replace smoke alarms every ten tears.
