Bureau of Fire Prevention
Staffed by the fire subcode official and two part-time fire inspectors, the bureau conducts annual inspections of all buildings within the township—with the exception of one and two family owner-occupied dwellings - to ensure that they meet all aspects of New Jersey’s Uniform Fire Safety Code. Other duties assigned to the bureau include smoke detector certification inspections, investigation of fire code-related complaints, and the investigation of fires. Additionally, with the assistance of members of the fire department, the bureau also provides a series of public education programs throughout the year.
