The Bureau of Fire Safety is responsible for ensuring compliance with the New Jersey Uniform Fire Code.

The duties of this department include performing fire safety inspections and fire safety related complaint investigations, as well as offering fire safety education programs to the community. It conducts post-fire investigations and participates in the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS). Various fire safety permits such as those required for tents or canopies, use of an open flame, and food trucks are also issued and inspected by this department.

One- and two-family dwellings which require a Certificate of Smoke Detector, Carbon Monoxide Alarm and Kitchen Fire Extinguisher Compliance for the sale of the property or a change in occupancy are inspected by the Bureau of Fire Safety prior to the issuance of that certificate. Additional information and instructions for obtaining this certificate can be found in the Documents and Forms section.
