Bureau of Fire Prevention
"To prevent injury and damages caused by fire through code development, inspections, and licensing."
The Bureau is comprised of four sections, under the direction of the Chief of Fire Prevention, Casia Sinco. The four sections and their Managers are:
Inspections, John Walker
Plans Review, Karl Thompson
Boiler Safety, Greg Frazier
Regulatory Licensing, Keith McCarthy
The Bureau, although headquartered in Tallahassee, has six field offices and three satellite offices around the state. A Supervisor is assigned to each field office to ensure support is available to our customers within their respective areas.
The Bureau now has a Public Portal where information related to Inspections of state buildings, inspections of boilers, plans reviews (state buildings only), and licenses issued by the Regulatory License Section can be found.
Those of you who visit this web-site are encouraged to do everything possible to help prevent fires from getting or being started.
