Fire Prevention Division

The Fire Prevention Division oversees all Community Risk Reduction activities. These efforts are undertaken through the Fire Marshal and include the following areas: Public Education, Fire Inspections, Fire/Arson Investigations, Commercial and Residential Plan Review, and participation on the Development Review Committee.

Each year, the Prevention Division conducts fire inspections in existing businesses and for new construction projects throughout the city. Violations are brought to the attention of the business owner or construction project manager. These inspections help ensure that properties are safely built and maintained and that new businesses are safe for employees and visitors.

The Prevention Division is led by Chief Ray Isom, who is responsible for developing, maintaining, and enforcing all related fire codes and ordinances.

Currently, the Anna Fire Department enforces the 2015 International Fire Code as amended by the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG). Please see the contractor information listed below for information on new construction requirements, inspection requests, and the plan review process.
