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.

Fire Prevention Week - Oct. 6 - 12

OSFM | Sep 06, 2013
From October 6-12, we'll be teaming with the National Fire Protection Association, other state Fire Marshals, and local fire departments to spread the word that more fires start in the kitchen than in any other part of the home—and people need to know how to keep cooking fires from starting in the first place.
