The men and women of the Fire Prevention Division are dedicated to promoting life safety throughout the City and County of Denver. 

We do this through continuous and efficient fire protection practices that enforce the Denver Fire Code--a code based on international safety standards and sharpened through local experience. These fire prevention practices include comprehensive programs of inspections, permits, life-safety system testing, licensing, public event safety, and hazardous material code enforcement.
