Fire Prevention

School InspectionThe Prevention Division works to reduce the potential impact of fire and explosion hazards where people live, work, and congregate. This team focuses on inspecting facilities which pose distinct fire hazards and where the potential loss of life from fire is very high.

The division is also responsible for the promotion of fire safety and the education of building owners, operators, and occupants, and the general public. Both office and field personnel are active educators, presenting a variety of program topics across the state of Kansas.

Our office even employs a dedicated Education Consultant to work with local fire and law enforcement jurisdictions, helping to educate kids on fire safety and prevent them from starting fires.

We also recognize ALL fire departments who have taken the time and initiative in keeping their communities fire safe with the smoke alarm program.  Our office has sent out over 800 alarms to departments across the state and will continue to do so until we can cover as many homes as possible.
