The Fire Prevention Bureau, lead by Lieutenant Keith Watson, is responsible for fire safety activities within our community. This is accomplished by:
Code Enforcement - The bureau conducts nearly 700 business inspections annually to insure compliance with the Ohio Fire Code.
Fire Investigation - We investigate all fires that occur in our jurisdiction to determine the origin and cause. Fires that are determined to be arson are prosecuted by the Union County Prosecuting Attorney.
Public Education - We offer a variety of classes to businesses and the public in areas like fire extinguisher use, home fire escape planning, and youth fire safety.
