Fire Prevention

Hampton Fire and Rescue's Fire Prevention Bureau is staffed by a Fire Prevention Officer, a Fire Inspector (currently vacant) and a Secretary. Together they are responsible for the inspection of all public and commercial buildings to determine the presence of fire hazards, adequate fire suppression and detection systems, and compliance with all fire and life safety codes.


The Bureau:

  • Investigates all fires to determine cause and origin
  • Performs public relations, training, and education in connection with all Fire Prevention programs working closely with the general public and individual companies
  • Reviews all plans for new construction and building modifications
