Fighting fires is a vital city service, and just as important is ensuring fires don't start in the first place. The Division of Support Services & Resource Management is led by Assistant Chief Nicholas Hosford. Support Services & Resource Management staff work proactively to eliminate fire hazards and safety concerns in the community. They also ensure the essential tools and resources of firefighting are ready when an emergency occurs.
The Community Services branch of the division works with partners within the City government and clients in neighborhood and business communities to further our Community Risk Reduction activities. Our staff enforce fire codes, provide public education opportunities, review building plans and construction projects and investigate fire incidents.
The City self-manages its fire facilities and emergency and non-emergency fleet. It also maintains and repairs small motors, tools and other emergency equipment and provides vehicle repair services to 28 other jurisdictions in a garage facility located in north Dayton.
