Prevention & Education

 

Fire Prevention 

One of the primary roles of the Fire Department is to prevent fires from happening in the first place and this is primarily accomplished through the Department’s Fire Prevention Division. Fire Prevention Inspectors with the cooperation of property owners, engineers, architects, as well as in conjunction with the Township’s Building and Planning Department, work diligently to correct hazards and increase fire safety awareness through a process of inspections, development/permit approval process, plan reviews, and enforcement.

Public Education

The Fire Department strives to prevent/reduce fires from occurring through a number of public fire and life safety education programs delivered by our Public Education Division. Educating the public about how to survive a fire and prevent fires from starting in the first place are important responsibilities.
