Fire Prevention and Safety

The Fire Department is responsible for safeguarding the community through adherence to fire regulations and hazard mitigation. Annual visits and fire safety inspections are conducted in businesses, apartment buildings, childcare facilities and schools, as well as annual inspections of existing business and apartment buildings.

Visits are made to businesses to ensure a fire safe facility and to provide occupants with safety tips and information.  Residential inspections are initiated through invitation or neighborhood concerns.

The Fire Department is also responsible for conducting plan reviews and inspections at construction sites in the City of Sierra Madre. All new construction and renovation projects are required to install fire sprinklers throughout the renovated structure.

The Sierra Madre Fire Code can be found under Title 8 and Title 15 of the Sierra Madre Municipal Code.
