Fire Prevention Bureau


The Ithaca Fire Department strives to keep our community safe. In an effort to reduce the chance of fire and loss of life the Ithaca Fire Department formed the fire prevention bureau in 1993. The Fire Prevention bureau is responsible for enforcing the Fire Code of New York State, the Property Maintenance Code of New York State and the City of Ithaca Code in all commercial, assembly, and R2 spaces. If you have any questions or concern you can contact us using the info on the right or you can check out our FAQs page.
