The Chillicothe Fire Prevention Bureau is responsible for enforcing the Ohio Fire Code and providing an effective Fire Prevention Program to the citizens of Chillicothe. The Fire Prevention Bureau takes the lead in ensuring the installation and maintenance of fire protection equipment and systems as well as monitoring the storage and handling of hazardous materials and substances.  We make public education a priority to reduce the hazards that place the community at risk.

As important as an efficient suppression force is, it will always be more economic to prevent fires than to put them out. The cost goes far beyond the money lost to repairs of the structure and replacement of lost inventories, especially when considering the lives lost to the ravages of fire. Employees lose wages and the community in general loses due to lost tax base. Many businesses never fully recover from major fire losses even with insurance.

We strive to be proactive rather than reactive in our enforcement and prevention efforts.
