The Fire Prevention Division provides community risk reduction services using public education, fire investigation, plan review, inspections and code enforcement. One of Sandy City Fire Department’s primary functions is to prevent the loss of life and property due to fire and emergencies through prevention. Each of our firefighters are trained in the basic aspects of fire prevention, while the divisions’ fire inspectors handle the more advanced aspects of the code, and our public educators teach about fire safety.
A Battalion Chief whose title is Fire Marshal oversees Fire Prevention. They manage the day-to-day operations of the division with the help of the team complete reviews of plans to check for code compliance, fire access, and water supply. Also, within the division is a Deputy Fire Marshal, Fire Inspector, and Public Life Safety Educators.
These employees perform many functions throughout the year to include: inspections of new buildings; standby duties at public events; meeting with the public and schools; and teaching CPR, First Aid and CERT. It is our goal to teach Sandy residents, employees, construction workers and visitors of Sandy the importance of fire safety and how they can become involved in fire prevention.
