The purpose of Fire Prevention is to educate the public on precautions that they can take to prevent potentially harmful fires and how to survive if they occur. Preservation of Life and the Protection of property is our goal. Fire Prevention is a proactive method of preventing Fire Emergencies or reducing the damage caused by them. The Elm Valley Joint Fire District currently has 4 State Certified Fire Safety Inspectors on staff.
The EVFD Fire Prevention Office performs Fire Inspections annually at Businesses and Public Buildings located within the Fire District. Responsibilities include enforcing the Ohio State Fire Code as it relates to new commercial construction, remodeling of existing businesses, change of business usage in an existing structure and annual fire inspections of commercial properties.
