Fire Prevention

Coquitlam Fire/Rescue takes a proactive approach in reducing the potential hazards and risks of fire through inspections and enforcement of codes, standards and regulations which are designed to provide preventative measures to reduce the start and spread of fire.

The Fire Prevention Officers within our Fire Prevention Division are responsible for annually inspecting properties and businesses to ensure compliance with the British Columbia Fire Code and local Bylaws, conducting fire investigations, and providing fire safety education to members of the community.
