Fire Prevention

Join Vernon Fire Rescue and the NFPA in this year's Fire Prevention campaign "Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice your Escape!"

Did you know? In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minute to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Escape planning and practice can help you make the most of the time you have, giving everyone enough time to get out. 

Plan ahead for your escape. Make your home escape plan and practice today. 


Submit a Fire Inspection Request

Custom inspections fall outside the realm of regular legislated inspections. If you require a fire inspection please use our fire inspection request form. Please contact your building inspector for building inspections.
