Community Risk Reduction

Fire Prevention is the responsibility of everyone in the community. The department proactively works to prevent fires by identifying and removing potential fire hazards. We also educate and assist property owners in making their homes and business as safe as possible.

Fire Codes

The Prescott City Council, in September of 2014, took an important step toward protecting the City from significant public safety incidents and catastrophic wildfire by unanimously approving stakeholder and city staff recommended changes by adopting the 2012 fire codes and amendments.

Business Self Inspection Program

The Prescott Fire Department has reinstated its Business Self-Inspection program. The program is free of charge and is designed for the general business that has a low-hazard potential for fire and life safety concerns. We have attempted to make the form as user friendly as possible. Please click here for the Business Self Inspection Form and follow the instructions. As always, if you have any questions or need help with your self-inspection, the Fire Department is available to answer your questions. With your support and cooperation, we can make the City of Prescott a safer community for all.

Fire Code Development helps our community to maintain the highest standards for our fire codes.

Fire Investigation determines the causes of fires, so that fire prevention methods can be improved, or in the case of criminal intent, bring the perpetrators to justice.
