Fire Prevention Bureau

The Fire Prevention Bureau consists of the Fire Marshal, one Captain and one Lieutenant. Together the staff of the bureau carry out our mission statement. “Through education, investigation, engineering, and enforcement the Pensacola Fire Department is committed to protecting the members of the Pensacola Fire Department and the citizens and guests of the City of Pensacola.” We implement the policies and programs that reduce the severity of emergencies, and prevent or minimize the loss of life, property and environmental damage. The Fire Prevention Bureau conducts fire inspections in commercial buildings for city and state licenses, certificates of occupancy, general fire safety inspections and acceptance testing of fire protection systems. Other duties include responding to both citizen and fire company officer complaints, plan review for compliance with the Florida Fire Prevention Code, coordination of Knox box installations, in-service training for company officers, and public education presentations.
