The goal of Georgetown Fire Prevention is to decrease the number and severity of fires throughout the Georgetown community. This goal is accomplished through regular fire prevention inspections, public education programs and reviewing fire sprinkler and alarm plans.
Fire inspections are conducted to limit the risk of life and property loss. Inspections identify unsafe conditions that can contribute to the occurrence and spread of fire. The fire department conducts inspections in all day care facilities, foster homes and nursing facilities, as they are required and licensed by the State of Texas. Additional inspections to commercial occupancies are performed to help the business owner prevent fires and reduce liability associated with fire and life safety issues.
Fire prevention offers a variety of public fire education programs that can be tailored to suit individual needs. These programs include, but are not limited to, school programs, business trainings, civic organization presentations and elderly safety programs. The programs include lectures, audio visual presentations and hands-on experience.
Fire sprinkler and alarm plans are reviewed for conformance to code requirements. Fire prevention reviews the plans for all types of built in fire protection systems. Our Georgetown Fire Inspectors attend meetings and trainings that are held with other city departments, county and state agencies to stay up to date with fire codes and regulations.
