The job of the fire prevention bureau is to prevent fires before they occur. This is attempted through education, inspection and enforcement of Ohio Fire Code. Each year the Prevention Bureau is busy at our local schools teaching children about fire safety. Programs covering "stop, drop and roll, crawl under smoke and know two ways out" are usually covered. Inspections of high fire risk industry are done to help employers stay safe from fire loss and most importantly keeping employees safe. Home fire safety inspections are completed for residents with foster children and day care. The Fire Prevention Bureau is also responsible for fire investigations. We attempt to determine what caused the fire as well as where it started. Fire extinguisher training is also available to residents and businesses at no expense.It is our hope that all residents have working smoke detectors in their homes. We suggest having one on each floor and in each bedroom. We want to stress changing your smoke detector batteries twice a year. We also suggest changing you smoke detectors every 10 years.Information for New and Existing Businesses
