The Fire and Life Safety Branch is staffed by one Senior Office Assistant, one Senior Community Educator, nine Fire Investigators, four Fire Inspectors, one Deputy Fire Marshal and one Assistant Fire Chief. The responsibilities of our Branch are divided into three areas:

Fire Code Compliance

The North Carolina Fire Prevention Code Addresses hazards and life-safety issues which can endanger business owners, employees, patrons, and fire fighters. Inspectors document violations and educate the responsible party on how to comply with the Code. The Fire Department strives to inspect all occupancies (with the exception of one and two-family dwellings) on an annual basis.
