Fire Prevention Services

The Prevention Services Division consist of the Fire Safety Services and Environmental Services groups. This Division functions as the Certified Unified Program Agency (CUPA) for state and federal environmental regulation as well as services of the Fire Prevention Services Division.

Location
Fire Prevention is located at Fire Station #1, 2101 H Street.

Planning Technicians
The duties of the planning technicians are to keep track of new streets and building construction, for the purpose of developing and modifying response maps which are used by fire station crews when responding to emergencies in our community. These maps not only show street locations but, also include fire hydrants and significant complexes such as schools, fire stations, large shopping centers and industrial sites. The fire hydrant information is also available to the public for determining fire flow needs and installation of fire sprinkler systems where required. Special Services also develops maps relating to data compiled on fire incidents, false alarms and major fire events. This information is used as a planning tool by staff for the future growth of the Fire Service.
