The primary goals of Mesa Fire Prevention are  life safety and property protection.

Fire Prevention performs inspections of all medium and high-hazard occupancies (excluding one and two family dwellings) in the City of Mesa to assist the community in eliminating hazards to create and/or maintain a safe environment.  Business Risk Classification defines how occupancy classifications are established.

Our Fire Investigator is frequently called out to determine the cause of fires in Mesa, and also to assist with fire investigations in the cities of Gilbert and Apache Junction.

Prevention is responsible for enforcing adopted codes and ordinances, conducting fire investigations, issuing the Fire Safety Operational Permit (FSOP), and other permits.  These include permits for special events, underground fuel tank removal, burning (pit barbeque, bonfire, etc.), and blasting.  The division also investigates citizen complaints regarding possible fire hazards, and maintains fire records for businesses in the City of Mesa.
