Fire Prevention Bureau Established
The Fayetteville Fire Prevention Bureau was formally established in June, 1977. Prior to this, inspections / investigations were performed by firefighters trained in fire investigation.

The bureau conducts fire investigations to determine the origin and cause, prepare reports for the responsible agency, respond to complaints and provide code enforcement.
