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