Fire Prevention

    The goal of Selma Fire's Inspection Program is to minimize risk of life and property loss from fire. We do this by eliminating hazardous conditions in businesses.

    National statistics show that 70% of businesses that suffer a major fire incident never reopen their doors, while 25% of businesses that do reopen their doors fail within one year. Big fires always start small. If fires in structures are not contained quickly, they spread through the building structure and cannot be extinguished. These uncontrolled fires can spread to surrounding buildings.

    For these reasons, it is vital for businesses and multi-unit residential owners to be educated about proper fire prevention practices. They also should be inspected every year.

    If you have specific questions about our Fire Inspection Program, please feel free to contact Fire Marshal Anthony Rivas at AnthonyR@cityofselma.com or (559) 891-2265
