Public Education & Prevention

Public Education Bureau


Classes are offered on fire safety and injury prevention for residents of all ages. Active education programs are:

  • Age appropriate and coordinated with specific age group educators
  • Provided as a course of study in the Grandview Heights Schools
  • Targeted to specific audiences such as child care centers and senior citizens
The Division of Fire conducts display booths at local events, participates in Safety Town, and offers community CPR classes. If your organization is interested in any of these programs, please contact the Division at (614) 488-5904.


Fire Prevention Bureau


Inspections are done on all public occupancies and businesses to enforce the local Fire Code. Compliance with the code reduces the potential for fires starting, limits the potential devastation of fires, and provides for safe evacuations. For commercial business inspections or questions, please call our Fire Prevention Office at (614) 340-5406. For questions regarding, public education, home or residential inspections, please call our Fire Marshal at (614)481-6212.
