Fire Prevention

Fire Department Open House The mission of the Logan Fire Department is to provide timely and effective emergency response, fire prevention practices, and fire and life safety public education.


The Fire Prevention Bureau exists to provide fire prevention through code enforcement, inspection, public education, and fire investigation.


The Fire Prevention Bureau is staffed with one Fire Marshal/Battalion Chief and one Fire Inspector. Each fire company also assists in fire prevention by completing company fire inspections of businesses.


Code enforcement begins through detailed plan reviews to ensure that properties and buildings are constructed in accordance with local and state requirements. The Fire Prevention Bureau staff strives to provide communities and contractors with current fire code information to safely design, build, and maintain buildings and developments.


Bureau staff verifies testing of fire and life safety systems such as fire sprinkler, fire alarms, and restaurant hoods. The staff inspects events such as fairs, carnivals, and firework displays. The staff also educates owners and occupants on the safe handling and proper storage of hazardous materials.


The Fire Prevention Bureau is responsible for inspecting existing businesses and properties for fire code compliance. The code enforcement and inspection program also includes a company fire inspection program where, under the direction of a Captain, personnel inspect businesses in the city. Inspections are a key element in pre-fire planning and building systems awareness.


The Public Education Program consists of three Fire Education Specialists. They provide numerous programs intended to promote and teach fire safety to all ages. They are trained to provide a large range of programs from teaching kindergarteners how to “Stop, Drop and Roll” to assisting senior citizens in recognizing and eliminating hazards in their home. They provide instruction in the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program and provide intervention for children and families on how to curb juvenile fire setting behavior.


The Fire Investigation Program consists of the Fire Marshal, a Fire Captain, and three Fire Investigators. The Fire Investigation Program works in conjunction with the Logan City Police Department during the investigation of fires. The Investigations Program is responsible for determining the origin and cause of fires and the investigation of other fire related incidents.

Public Education

Logan has three firefighters that, in addition to fighting fires or performing medical care, act as Public Education Specialists. These three firefighters spend a great deal of time educating our citzens about the dangers of fire, smoke, carbon monoxide, and more.


Logan also takes part in the Cache Valley Fire Public Education Coalition, which includes many other fire departments in Cache Valley. We feel that the best and most cost efficient way to fight fire is prevent it from starting in the first place. In pursuit of that goal, the coalition routinely places safety advertising in the local newspaper, several radio stations, many movie theater screens, and an electronic sign board.


Here are some of the other services that we are involved in:

Sprinkler Inspections
