Assistant Fire Marshal: Kevin Bush

Fire Prevention is responsible for performing fire inspections, education and enforcement of adopted codes and ordinances, conducting fire investigations, issuing the Fire Safety Operational Permit (FSOP), conducting Records Searches, burning (pit barbecue, bonfire), and blasting. The division also investigates complaints regarding possible fire hazards in occupancies (excludes one and two family dwellings and home based businesses) and maintains fire records for occupancies in the City of Mesa.    

Fire Inspectors perform inspections of all high, medium, and low hazard occupancies (excludes one and two family dwellings and home based businesses) in Mesa to assist our community in eliminating hazards to create and/or maintain a safe environment. Occupancy type, use, and size define how Risk Classifications are established.

Fire Investigators conduct fire investigations to determine the origin and cause of fires in Mesa and assist with fire investigations in other valley cities.
