Community Risk Reduction

Fire Prevention

Mission: To reduce loss of life and property due to fire and related hazards through prevention.

Strategy: We believe that prevention is the most effective means of fire protection. We incorporate the principles of engineering, enforcement, and education into innovative fire protection. At our core, we understand that fire is largely preventable. We believe that through fire and life safety engineering, enforcement, and education, we can help create a safer community and reduce the impact of fire.

The personnel within the Community Risk Reduction Division (CCR) provide the community of Baytown with fire plans review, fire inspections, arson investigations, Knox Boxes for commercial and residential, along with public education.
