Community Risk Reduction Division Mission Statement

The Community Risk Division applies life safety codes to new and existing structures, performs fire investigation and oversees hazardous material administration.  The first goal for 2017 is to move from a personality driven division to a policy based operation. The second goal is to be aware of incidents in other jurisdictions and to consider their relevance in reducing risk in our community.

Areas of Responsibility

Fire Prevention To reduce risk in the community by applying Fire Code Standards to non-residential structures, residential structures over three units on a parcel and developments in the community.

Fire Investigation To investigate fires to determine if a crime has occurred, a dangerous condition exists and to provide foundational information for Public Affairs outreach regarding the cause and origin of fires, identified patterns and recognize fire trends in an effort to reduce risk in the community.

Hazardous Material Administration

To reduce risk to the community by complying with Federal, State and local hazardous material regulations, recording our observations in the appropriate database, and gain compliance of the regulations by the businesses in our community.
