Andrew DiekemperThe Fire Prevention Division is led by Division Chief Andrew “Butch” Diekemper. The Fire Prevention Division oversees a diverse collection of community risk reduction programs.

These programs include thorough annual inspections of all commercial occupancies, plan reviews and inspections of all new construction, tenant finishes, and building remodels.

Our team places an emphasis on community public education, led by passionate members of our organization. Fire scene investigators provide fire trending data through investigations that help drive our yearly educational programs. We take great pride in our business partnerships and the relationships we build with the members of our community. These relationships foster a pro-active mindset of safety for those who live, work, and visit our city.

“Through education, engineering, enforcement, emergency response, economic incentives and everyone being involved, together we can make a difference.”
