Fire Code Enforcement

The Trenton Fire Department is responsible for the enforcement of the fire prevention codes in all existing buildings, new construction, hazardous material use and reporting as well as complaints regarding fire code violations.

The TFD conducts fire safety inspections of commercial/business properties throughout the city.  These inspections help to ensure fire prevention and also educates the business/building owners on how to create and maintain a fire safe business while educating the department on what is inside the business so should a fire occur they will be more prepared for what to expect. In most cases, a resident or business owner is unaware of fire code violations and once made aware they quickly take action to correct the violation.
