Fire Prevention

The Fire Prevention Division devotes a large amount of time to educating the public on the dangers of and ways to prevent fires and other emergencies. Fire Prevention Week in the schools, a booth at the Eastern New Mexico State Fair, and fire extinguisher classes at a local business are but a few ways the Fire Prevention Division focuses on education.

The Fire Marshal and deputies are also trained in arson investigation and do annual inspections on every business in town as well as reviewing new business construction plans. With the help of shift personnel the department has installed thousands of smoke detectors in homes right here in Roswell. Prevention is the key to having the Roswell community be as safe and fire free as possible.
