Prevention Division

The Prevention Division runs several prevention programs for the Fire District. The Division is responsible for all code enforcement in addition to performing plan reviews on existing businesses as well as new commercial construction.

The Fire District currently utilizes the International Fire Code-2018 edition for all code enforcement activities as well as NFPA guidelines. We update the code every 6 years to ensure adequate protection is in place for our citizens and guests.

The Prevention Division also participates in fire prevention activities year around, but we specifically go to schools both public and private every October and reach 1200 kids and adults annually. In addition, we offer fire extinguisher training to public and private entities.

The District participates in a smoke alarm programs it is proven that working smoking detectors save lives. If you need a smoke detector replacement, a check or batteries changed please contact the District office at 417-334-3440 to set up an appointment. We also want to remind our citizens and business owners when you change your clocks change your batteries this ensures that batteries are fresh, and the device will work when needed also replace smoke detectors every ten years.
