Commercial Fire Prevention

The Eureka Fire Protection District proudly serves 410 businesses within our district. As a business owner in the district, we take it very seriously the opportunity to partner with you in order to keep you and your customers safe. 

Commercial Fire Inspections

Routine commercial fire prevention inspections allow the Eureka Fire Protection District to help the occupants of commercial occupancies reduce fire hazards and insure that fire and life safety features of these occupancies are in place and working as they should. 

Important occupant telephone contact numbers are confirmed so that if there is an incident after business hours we can contact someone with authority to make decisions for that occupancy.
