COVID-19 RESPONSE UPDATE

As the Bureau of Fire Prevention (BFP) closely monitors the impact of COVID-19, the health and safety of our employees and customers remains our top priority.

In order to limit the spread of COVID-19, the Bureau of Fire Prevention is closing our office locations to the public until further notice.

Realizing that the work we do is critical to the fire service, boiler owners, licensees and state-owned buildings around the State, we continue our commitment to being available when our customers need us most; however, the public will not be permitted to visit any Bureau of Fire Prevention locations until further notice.
