Community Risk Reduction

The primary goal of the Community Risk Reduction Division (formerly known as Prevention) is to make our community a safe and healthy place to live, work and visit through the preservation of life—both civilian and firefighter—and property, in that order. We will achieve this goal by following the NFPA Standard on Organization and Deployment of Fire Prevention Inspection and Code Enforcement. Risk Reduction personnel use a strategic and measurable approach to reducing the community’s risks of fire and emergency medical incidents through the programs and processes listed on this page.
