Fire prevention education is part of Fire Department operations under the authority of the Shelby County Fire Marshal. Fire prevention involves the enforcement of the Shelby County and Alabama Fire Code and is closely associated with the building code and building permitting process. The Fire Marshal is involved in the plan review process for new construction or renovation projects and is responsible for ensuring that Fire Code requirements are met before signing off on design plans. Other common fire prevention efforts include educational programs in Shelby County schools, public information campaigns, smoke detector distribution programs, and outreach at public events. The Shelby County Fire Marshal also investigates structure fires to determine their causes.
