Fire Prevention is Our Ultimate Goal

The South Adams County Fire Prevention Bureau was established in 1971 with 1 Fire Inspector. Today the Fire Prevention Bureau consists of one Fire Marshal and three Fire Prevention Officers. The Fire Prevention Bureau is responsible for fire safety, youth fire intervention, inspections of new and existing buildings, reviewing plans of new construction and hazardous materials processes as well as code enforcement. The Fire Prevention Bureau also spends many hours conducting public education classes both within the business community, and within local schools instructing children on the many ways of being fire safe.

The Fire Prevention Bureau believes that their work with children is imperative to their education. They stress the importance of not playing with fire, preparing safe methods of evacuation in the case of a fire as well as knowing who to call in the event of an emergency.

In addition they are responsible for the investigation of any fire within the district and work closely with local law enforcement ensuring community safety.
