Permit Sonoma Fire Prevention

Fire Prevention Division

The Fire Prevention Division is primarily responsible for programs, procedures, and projects for preventing the outbreak of fires within the unincorporated areas of the county.

In addition, the division includes the Hazardous Materials unit who regulates the storage, handling, and processing of Hazardous Materials through the Certified Unified Program Agency (CUPA) program.

Our goal is to minimize the danger to persons and damage to property caused by fires that do occur. In addition to code enforcement, the Fire Prevention Division staff is responsible for hazardous materials incident response, fire investigations and emergency scene management support at emergencies.
