fire safety services
The City of Mason employs a full-time fire safety inspector who enforces state and local fire codes in the city. The City of Mason Fire Department’s goal is to work with businesses to ensure their continued success by minimizing losses through loss control and fire and emergency prevention. At least once a year, the inspectors visit all businesses in Mason to ensure that they provide a safe work environment and are in compliance with state and local fire codes. If and when violations are found, the owner/occupant is given notice to correct the items and is given an appropriate amount of time to make the changes to obtain compliance.
The fire safety inspector also works closely with the city’s Engineering & Building Department to review plans for new subdivisions, buildings, and additions to existing structures. Their goal is to make sure these meet fire code regulations and are easily accessible for fire and EMS equipment, and to help ensure that all fire safety items are addressed prior to the start of construction.
A significant part of Mason’s Fire Department services is public education programming taught by on-duty Fire and EMS personnel. Please contact the Fire Department to set up Car Seat Inspections, Station Tours and Fire Safety Talks.
