The Prevention Bureau is committed to business safety and resiliency, and works collaboratively with the Fire District's Emergency Management program, ReadyRC, to offer additional resources and training for disaster resiliency.
HIGH HAZARD INSPECTION PROGRAM
Many businesses and facilities are hazardous simply as a result of the normal business operations of how a building is used. The high hazard inspection program provides routine inspections that require compliance with the Fire Code and environmental protection regulations.
COMMERCIAL AND RETAIL SMALL BUSINESS ASSESSMENTS
Small businesses are the foundation of the U.S. economy providing nearly 50% of the entire productivity in the U.S. The Fire District provides no-cost safety assessments for small businesses to help them prevent operational disruptions that can permanently harm the viability of a small business.
The Fire District offers classroom and hands-on training for businesses so employees can learn how to use a fire extinguisher. A 30-minute classroom presentation will teach employees the basics of fire behavior as well as when and how to properly use a fire extinguisher. Then employees can try using a fire extinguisher to put out a live fire contained in a training prop. Class size: 5 minimum to 30 maximum. Cost is approximately $10 per employee, if extinguishers are provided by the Fire District. There is no cost for the training if the business provides the extinguishers. Email us at RCfire@CityofRC.us to schedule a training.
