Fire Prevention

Division Chief - Andrew Von Holt

Brampton Fire and Emergency Services are leaders and innovators in the field of Fire Prevention. Our Fire Prevention division is recognized as one of the most progressive and respected in the country.

With most of the public education responsibilities and related programs handled by our Fire and Life Safety Education​ division, our Fire Prevention Officers are able to concentrate more fully on the critical tasks of fire code inspection, fire code enforcement and fire investigation. Our Fire Prevention team takes pride in making our city a safer place in which to live and work.

We have officers that are specialized in fire alarm systems, sprinkler systems, plans examination, wood energy technology, fire investigation, commercial cooking, and many other areas of fire protection technology.
