Life Safety & Fire PreventionProtecting Life and Property
The Life Safety & Fire Prevention Division of North Collier Fire Control and Rescue District adopts the District’s All-Hazard response philosophy, understanding that emergency services must have a solid foundation of support to be efficient.
It provides a variety of services to that do not involve emergency response. Equally important, these services have a significant impact on the ability of the fire district to accomplish its primary mission to minimize the risk of life and property loss from fire by controlling and eliminating hazardous conditions before a fire occurs. Comprehensive fire inspection, code enforcement and public education programs are an effective way to accomplish this mission. It is always better to prevent a fire rather than fight a fire. In addition, proper enforcement of life safety codes can improve the chances of survival for occupants should a fire occur.
The Life Safety Division is supported by a team of Fire Marshal, Fire Inspectors, Fire Plan Examiners and Public Education Officers, all working together to ensure the public protection of life and property.
Additionally, the District utilizes the Community Risk Reduction (CRR) process to provide the appropriate resources to match the emergency that may occur or has occurred. The CRR process identifies and prioritizes local risks followed by the integrated and strategic investment of resources (emergency response and prevention) to reduce their occurrence and impact to our valued community.
