Fire & Life Safety

Creating a Safe Environment

It is the mission of Monterey Park Fire Department's Fire Prevention Division to work in partnership with the people of our city to promote and maintain a safe and desirable living and working environment. To accomplish this, we focus primarily on the following tasks.

  • Administer a fair and unbiased inspection program and offer interpretive guidance to ensure compliance with the established fire code and access for emergency services in buildings and along streets
  • Work in conjunction with businesses, neighborhood associations, residents, and other agencies to identify and address concerns within the community
  • Initiate special programs targeted to address specific fire and life safety risks identified within the service area
  • Monitor public assemblies and community events to ensure safe means of egress and access for emergency services
