Fire Prevention & Life Safety
Fire Prevention is a core function of the Department. The Department offers a variety of prevention education as well as courtesy business inspections. Contact the Department at 804-633-9831 if you would like a fire prevention presentation for your daycare, civic, or faith group.
The Department staffs a team of Investigators that work to determine fire causes. Following a fire, many homeowners are asked to provide a copy of a fire report for insurance purposes. To obtain a copy of a fire report call 804-633-9831 or email the team.
