Residents Residential fire prevention is crucial for the safety and well-being of our residents and the Fire Prevention Division accomplishes this through a combination of Home Inspections and Prevention Education. Residents are highly encouraged to to be aware of prevention methods, such as where a smoke detector should be in their home, how often to test and how often to replace units. Smoke detectors, Carbon Monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers are all very important tools to homeowners in the prevention of devastating home fires.
