Keeping the Community Safe
The Fire Prevention Team keeps the community safe in a variety of ways. We review construction plans, inspect commercial buildings on an annual basis, and check equipment installations to make sure state fire codes are met. We make sure residents in fire-prone areas keep their property clean of debris and weeds. We oversee how hazardous materials are used and stored throughout the City, and help the Police Department ensure safety at special events. We are proud to serve this community!
CUPA requirements regulate how hazardous materials are stored and used in our community. Read the CUPA page to learn about the requirements and how to find out what hazardous materials are present nearby.
Dried out grasses and other plant debris pose a serious fire risk in certain areas of the City. The weed abatement program helps the City reduce this risk and keep the community (and firefighters) safe. Our team identifies problem properties, then works with the owners to make sure the risk is reduced.
