FIRE PREVENTION

 

As its name reflects, the fire prevention branch’s role is to prevent the loss of life and property due to fire. They accomplish this through public fire and life safety education, reviewing facility construction plans, and by enforcing the fire codes and regulations. The section consists of four certified fire inspectors with a combined total of more then 70 years of fire service experience. 

The fire department submits to the belief the safest most efficient way to reduce life and property loss resulting from fire is to not have a fire at all. This belief serves as the foundation of the Prevention Branch whose main emphasis is prevention through education. 

The fire department relies heavily on the vigilance of Fort Leonard Wood's building occupants to recognize, reduce and eliminate fire hazards.
