Program Objective

The Community Risk Reduction (CRR) division provides the highest level of fire prevention services through comprehensive inspections, plan review services, public education, fire investigations, and public outreach.  The CRR division's objective is to identify risks within the community and implement programs to reduce the risk of injury, loss of life, and loss of property from fires and other emergencies or events.

Program Personnel

Program Overview

The Huntington Beach Fire Department performs fire inspections at a frequency determined by our Community Risk Assessment .  These inspections follow the California Fire Code which has been adopted by the City.   City businesses are inspected to ensure that these codes and regulations are followed.  Performing such inspections minimizes the chances of fire and property damage, while increasing public safety.  In this capacity the fire department serves business owners as a valuable resource to safeguard their property investments.

Development Services

The CRR division conducts plan reviews for all new residential and commercial construction for compliance with all fire and life safety codes and standards.  Performing plan reviews and construction inspections ensures the safety of the building for all occupants, guests, and first responders.
