Bureau of Fire Prevention

The mission of the Bureau of Fire Prevention is to provide the citizens of Whippany with protection against loss of life and property by fire through code enforcement. In recent years the mission of the Fire Prevention Bureau has expanded to include the area of public education.
Careful, systematic and intelligent fire inspections of schools, institutions, assemblies, and businesses are conducted by professional, fire department trained, uniformed fire inspectors. These inspections coupled with pro-active public education programs are the backbone of effective fire prevention accomplishments. They are the most powerful factors in the reduction of major losses of life and property.
