The Fire Prevention Bureau is a division of the Mission Fire Department. The bureau’s main responsibilities are the enforcement of city ordinances, fire codes, plan reviews, and fire inspections, as well as providing fire safety education and undertaking fire investigations.
The Fire Prevention Bureau’s responsibility is to protect the public and fire service personnel with coordinated efforts in code enforcement, fire inspections and public education thereby reducing the risk of loss of life and property due to fire and other emergencies in the City of Mission.
The majority of daily activity is the increase in compliance of fire codes through inspections and education. The Fire Prevention Bureau continuously educates property owners and tenants while conducting inspections. This helps to obtain voluntary compliance, as well as limit the number of repeat violations in the future.
The Fire Prevention Bureau’s educational programs provide up to date life safety messages in fire and injury prevention through direct training programs, as well as presentations and demonstrations. While many programs are aimed towards children, safety tips and programs are also addressed to senior citizens and businesses.
