Annual Division
The major responsibility of the Temecula Fire Prevention Bureau is to prevent fire and save lives and property. An effective way to meet this obligation is to conduct Annual field inspections in accordance with section 103.3 of the California Fire Code. The Fire Code / Permit Inspection program developed by the Fire Prevention Bureau enhances the life safety environment of the City of Temecula by ensuring all businesses are meeting fire code requirements. This program will effect all occupancies subject to fire code regulations. The goal of the program is to reduce the amount of deaths, injuries, and property loss in the city resulting from fire.
