The Fire Prevention Bureau strives to prevent fires from occurring by conducting regular inspections of commercial buildings to identify fire hazards and code violations and by conducting technical reviews of building plans before a building is constructed to identify potential fire hazards and code violations.
Contact the Fire Department at 708-206-3400 for information on commercial property fire inspections or technical review of building plans.

Educating the public, particularly children, about fire prevention and safety practices is an important function of the Homewood Fire Department. Firefighters give presentations on fire safety at every school in the community. Firefighters are also available to meet with senior citizen groups and condominium associations.
Every year during Fire Prevention Week (October) the Fire Department holds its Open House. Residents are invited to the fire station to learn about fire safety and prevention. The Open House features interactive displays on a variety of fire and personal safety topics.
