View Royal’s Fire Prevention Division delivers fire and life safety education to the public through a wide variety of safety programs such as Learn Not to Burn, Smoke Alarm Program, and our Car Seat Education Program. The Division inspects commercial, residential and industrial occupancies to ensure compliance with municipal and provincial fire safety regulations and municipal bylaws; conducts fire cause and determination investigations; and reviews plans for new construction and conduct site inspections for fire and life safety systems prior to occupancy. The Fire Prevention Division also manages pre-fire plan development and data entry to support our Fire Department Management program.
