Fire Prevention

An OSFM fire prevention specialist inspecting a new facilityThe Prevention Division works to reduce the potential impact of fire and explosion hazards where people live, work, and congregate. This team focuses on inspecting facilities which pose distinct fire hazards and where the potential loss of life from fire is very high.

The division is also responsible for the promotion of fire safety and the education of building owners, operators, and occupants, and the general public. Both office and field personnel are active educators, presenting a variety of program topics across the state of Kansas.

Our office even employs a dedicated Education Consultant to work with local fire and law enforcement jurisdictions, helping to educate kids on fire safety and prevent them from starting fires.

New Law Transfers Boiler Inspections to OSFM

User Not Found | May 16, 2013

On March 25, Governor Sam Brownback signed into law SB 135, a bill that transfers responsibility for boiler inspections from the Department of Labor to the OSFM. 

With this new responsibility comes new personnel being transferred to our office as well. One chief boiler inspector and five field inspector positions will be joining the OSFM team. The agency will also be hiring an administrative assistant for this unit.

Boilers and pressure vessels that fall under the Kansas Boiler Safety Act shall be constructed to a recognized code of construction and be registered with the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors.

All new boiler and pressure vessel installations, second hand, relocated, repaired and those moved from other jurisdictions must be reported to this office for inspection scheduling, by the installer, owner or operator, prior to being placed in operation.

All welded repairs and alterations on boilers or pressure vessels shall be performed by a firm that holds a National Board "R" Stamp. Repair forms are filed in this office.

Responsibilities for the Boiler Inspection & Safety Unit include:

  •  Oversee inspection, installation and repairs on all boilers and pressure vessels that are subject to the Kansas Boiler Safety Act, K.S.A. 44-913 et seq
  •  Maintain historical and current boiler safety records
  •  Issue operating certificates
  •  Perform the first inspection on all boilers and pressure vessels
