The Fire Prevention Bureau’s Mission is to provide the residents and visitors of Broward County, with professional, high quality, comprehensive, and cost-efficient fire prevention and life safety management services to reduce the loss of life and property from fire and other perils.

The Fire Prevention Bureau of the Broward Sheriff's Office has a widespread range of responsibilities. Those responsibilities include:

  • Fire prevention code enforcement
  • Reviewing, issuing and inspecting special event permits that include special events such as firework displays and operations involving hazardous materials


Virtual car seat appointments are available for parents/caregivers that need assistance with the installation of a child car seat. Appointments will be scheduled with one of our Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians.
