Fire Prevention Bureau

The Fire Prevention Bureau enforces all applicable life safety and fire protection requirements of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), State of Kentucky laws, and City of Murray Ordinances.  The bureau members also work with the Building Department conducting plan reviews to ensure all building plans comply with national, state, and local codes.  The Fire Prevention Bureau conducts inspections on all new commercial buildings and also conducts regular inspections of certain commercial and residential occupancies within the City.

The other primary responsibility of the Fire Prevention Bureau is to conduct fire investigations.  Fires that are suspicious in nature, or cause a large loss or fatality, are investigated.

Public education is coordinated through the Fire Prevention Bureau.  Fire safety and prevention programs have been designed for all age groups.  These programs are available to businesses, schools, church groups and civic organizations.  Station tours are also available for groups or individuals.  Please contact Fire Administration to schedule an event.
