Fire Prevention

The Fire Prevention Division continually strives to achieve this goal through code compliance, enforcement and community education. 

The fire prevention duties are conducted by the Deputy Fire Chief, Captains and Lieutenants throughout the year.   As a group we have the responsibility of overseeing and enforcing Massachusetts General Laws-Chapter 148, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Board of Fire Prevention Regulations 527 CMR 1-50 Fire Code, sections of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts State Building Code and also standards and guidelines set forth by the National Fire Protection Association.
