Just as its name implies, the mission of the Fair Lawn Fire Prevention Bureau is to prevent fire. Each year, approximately 4,500 locations are subject to Fire Safety Inspections conducted by the Bureau in accordance with the New Jersey Uniform Fire Code. Additionally, the Bureau investigates fires and various other incidents and coordinates with Law Enforcement and other outside agencies as might be necessary. The Bureau also seeks to prevent fires and injury by educating the public in Fire Safety.


Fire Official Angelo Castronovo is in charge of the Fire Prevention Bureau.

The Bureau has been the recipient of the Fire Safety Program of the Year Award from the New Jersey Fire Prevention & Protection Association. All the Inspectors are New Jersey Certified Fire Officials & Inspectors and have served many years as firefighters. The Inspectors of the Bureau have distinguished themselves and received several commendations as firefighters and fire prevention officials.
