Fire Prevention Division

The mission of the Fire Prevention Division is to provide residents protection against the loss of life and property from fire through code enforcement and public education.

The primary objectives are:

  • The prevention of fires.
  • The elimination of fire and life safety hazards in all existing buildings.
  • The maintenance of fire protection equipment and systems through inspection.
  • The regulation of storage, use, and handling of hazardous materials.
  • The enforcement of the New Jersey Uniform Fire Code (IFC New Jersey Edition 2006).

The Fire Official is the administrator of the Fire Prevention Division and is responsible for fire code enforcement in existing construction to ensure minimum fire safety standards, set forth by law, are maintained. This includes fire prevention inspections of city businesses, investigation and remedy of fire code complaints. The Fire Prevention Division also works in conjunction with the shift personnel to provide public education, school fire prevention programs (public, private, and pre-school) and fire safety information services.
