Bureau of Fire Prevention
The Fire Prevention Bureau, within the Department of Inspections, protects the health, safety and welfare of Township residents through the administration and enforcement of the New Jersey Uniform Fire Code.
The New Jersey Uniform Fire Code is enforced by the Bureau by two full-time Fire Inspectors under the supervision of the Fire Official. The Fire Official oversees the local administration of the New Jersey Uniform Fire Code.
The Bureau of Fire Prevention conducts annual fire safety inspections of all businesses and non-residential facilities, issues fire permits, inspects fire extinguishers, smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors prior to the resale or re-occupancy of residences and other duties as defined in the Uniform Fire Code.
Inspections can be scheduled either by stopping at the Department of Inspections office during business hours or by fax (609) 625-7063. The Department currently does not accept phoned in inspection requests.
