Kent County Fire Code Inspections

Fire prevention education is part of Fire Department operations under the authority of the Kent County Fire Marshal. Fire prevention involves the enforcement of the Kent County and Michigan 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 Kent County schools, public information campaigns, smoke detector distribution programs, and outreach at public events. The Kent County Fire Marshal also investigates structure fires to determine their causes.
