Pickering Fire Services takes great pride in ensuring the safety of our community. The Fire Prevention Section is overseen by the Deputy Chief, Administration and provides direction to the Chief Fire Prevention Officer, Fire Prevention Officer, and Fire Inspectors.
Our goal is to educate residents on the probability of fires happening, common causes of fire in our community and empower them to take action to protect their family from fire. Informing the public on prevention measures is a critical component in keeping our residents and their property safe from fire.
Every October, we participate in the Office of the Fire Marshal's Fire Prevention Week Events. Each year, hundreds of people come out to the events where they can speak with Fire Prevention staff about fire safety at various locations throughout the City.
The following services are provided by the Fire Prevention Section:
Licensing and routine inspections
Vulnerable occupancies inspections
Public education presentations and events
Fire investigations to determine fire cause and origin
