The primary responsibility of the Fire Prevention Division is to enforce all adopted codes and city ordinances pertaining to fire protection and investigation. Our department will inspect buildings to abate fire hazards and investigate the cause and origin of fires. The Chief and Deputy Chief are both active members of the Downriver Mutual Aid Fire Investigation Task Force and utilize that organization when the need arises.
The Fire Prevention Division is also responsible for educating the public in matters of fire safety; we accomplish this through educational programs both in our schools and our senior housing facilities. The goal of the Allen Park Fire Prevention Bureau is to provide a fire safe environment for all persons who live, work and visit the City of Allen Park. The Allen Park Fire Department prevention efforts are the responsibility of Chief Douglas LaFond and Deputy Chief / Fire Marshal Edward Cann.
