The Bedford Fire Department Prevention Bureau provides the town with fire code enforcement based on the NFPA Life Safety Code.
Our mission is to provide inspections on all commercial properties within the town every year. The main focus of this work is in code analysis, review, and judicious enforcement.
Other functions of the bureau focus on plan reviews for specific types of life safety early warning systems, including sprinkler systems, fire alarm systems, hood extinguishment systems, FM-200, above and below ground tank installations and removals.
We also handle complaints by citizens of potential fire life safety hazards.
Additionally, the Fire Prevention Bureau offers fire safety education materials and assistance to schools, day care centers, hospitals, block clubs and other groups.
