Topeka Fire Department's Division of Fire Prevention works diligently to prevent fires through ensuring proper fire protection and engineering in building design, educating our citizens about fire safety and prevention, and conducting fire and life safety inspections in commercial facilities on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, we cannot prevent all fires.
