Community Risk Reduction Division

Sacramento County is a growing, diversified, and dynamic community. As it continues to change in the coming years, Metro Fire will continue to adapt to meet the needs of the community it serves. This is especially true concerning the business community. Metro Fire wants all homes and businesses equipped with effective life safety technology and maintained in a manner that assures early detection and warning if a fire occurs. Metro Fire provides services in Code Enforcement, Inspections, and New Construction plan review. We see this service as the first step in providing our community members safe living and working environments.

The Community Risk Reduction Division (formerly Fire Prevention Bureau) is responsible for protecting the public through coordinated efforts in fire prevention code enforcement and fire protection engineering. Fire Inspectors responsible for code enforcement inspect existing buildings and properties for fire code violations, assist fire suppression personnel, respond to complaints, and review and approve licensed care facilities. Fire Inspectors are responsible for fire protection engineering review plans for all construction projects and fire protection systems, and conduct the testing and inspections for those projects. The Community Risk Reduction Division also manages the weed abatement program, and reviews, approves and inspects special events, carnivals, fairs and fireworks displays.
