The primary goal of the Fire Marshal’s Office is to prevent fires by assuring that all publicly occupied structures are maintained in accordance with nationally recognized fire safety standards. The Fire Prevention Bureau was established in 1980, to promote fire safety for the residents of City of

These codes help business and homeowners create a safer working and living condition. Currently, the Fire Prevention Bureau consists of four inspectors. The Fire Marshal oversees all inspections of commercial establishments, businesses and multiple dwelling residences within the City. The Fire Marshal also assists local businesses in the town set up and operates within the guidelines of the New Jersey State Uniform Fire Code. All personnel are fully certified in accordance with New Jersey State requirements and are current fire fighters. An important function of the Fire Marshal’s Office is to respond and investigate all reported fires or explosions occurring within the

City of Woodbury as trained fire investigators, the Fire Marshal’s Office determines the origin and cause of the fire.
