Flint Fire Prevention Bureau


The Flint Fire Prevention Bureau (FPB) is a division within the Flint Fire Department whose function is to be proactive in fire suppression by working to prevent the occurrence of fires. Fire and life safety services are provided as well as educational presentations which serve to assist in raising awareness of potential hazards.  The Bureau also is responsible for investigating suspicious fires when circumstances indicate that arson might be suspected.

Educating both city residents as well as visitors about fire safety is at the forefront of the FPB. This is accomplished through involvement in numerous safety and health fairs held throughout the community. The FPB teaches fire safety to children and parents alike during visits to schools and provides demonstrations with the department’s Fire Safety House.  One-on-one guidance sessions are scheduled with juvenile fire setters and their parents with the goal of preventing this type of behavior and achieving a positive life-long impact.

The Fire Prevention Bureau consists of two fire code inspectors who conduct annual fire inspections at city businesses in an effort to ensure fire code compliance.  The inspectors scrutinize facilities for hazardous materials with regards to the Firefighters Right to Know law, and operate the department’s “Project Get Alarmed” program, which provides residents with free smoke detectors.
