Fire Prevention

 

It is the mission of the City of Newton Fire Department's Fire Prevention Bureau to prevent and/or reduce the incidence of fire by increasing the awareness and knowledge of the residents and businesses in respect to fire safety, and by ensuring compliance with the City of Newton Fire Code, the North Carolina Fire Prevention Code and applicable federal regulations. This mission will be accomplished through fire prevention education, fire investigations and annual inspections. We will actively participate with our community, serve as role models, and strive to effectively and efficiently utilize all resources made available, to provide safety and excellent customer service to the citizens of the City of Newton as well as our visitors.
