Fire prevention is the framework for protecting lives and property within our community. The Princeton Fire Department engages in fire prevention activities on multiple levels to assure the community risk is addressed, that codes and standards are enforced, and to reach out and educate the public for a safer community. We team up with the Fire Marshall, Code Enforcement, and the Building Inspector in our efforts to address fire prevention initiatives in the City of Princeton. Listed below are a few of the services we provide.
- Pre-Fire Planning of high risk facilities
- Education programs, Station tours, and Engine visits
- Installation of smoke detectors (City and County Program)
- Fire hydrant inspection, flow testing, maintenance, and marking
- Supervision of fire drills at local schools, nursing homes, and day care facilities
- Enforcement of fire code violations in Princeton and the surrounding community
- Inspection of businesses, public buildings, and residences for fire code compliance and safety
The Princeton Fire Department is also actively involved in the National “Ready, Set, Go” program. This program is designed to educate and prepare homeowners and businesses for protecting their lives and property in the event of an uncontrollable wildland fire. The Princeton Fire Department was privileged in 2015 to help the International Association of Fire Chief’s (IAFC) and the Ready Set Go program (RSG), produce a national educational video.
