The Fire Prevention Division is responsible for administering fire safety education, fire cause determination, inspection of business occupancies, and fire code enforcement. A great deal of the public contact achieved by the Department is a direct result of the Fire Prevention programs such as annual building inspections. These programs check code compliance and proper life safety standards.
The Division is lead by Captain Chris Johns. In addition to Captain Johns, all personnel assigned to the part time staff carry a great deal of responsibility of assisting in the Fire Prevention mission of the Department.
The Department continues an aggressive posture towards fire and life safety inspections of all commercial occupancies on an annual basis. These inspections included day care facilities licensed by the State of Ohio, inspections of newly opened businesses, and occupancies requiring Ohio Fire Code permits.
