Fire Prevention
Overview
The Fire Prevention Division is tasked with providing the highest level of fire prevention through public education, inspection, and code enforcement and detailed plan review. Under the direction of the division chief / fire marshal, the Fire Prevention Bureau personnel strive to provide members of the Fire Authority with the most updated information available to safely protect their homes or places of business from fire and hazards. Fire prevention has proven to be the most effective way to reduce loss of life and property.  Kent Fire Department provides contract services to the cities of Kent, Covington, SeaTac and Fire District 37.
