Fire Department Statistics & Initiatives The Fire Department continues its dedication to the Community by promoting professionalism and training standards, reinstating and improving inspection processes. Of note, TFD conducted a total of 126 Fire Inspections for licensed local businesses. This free of charge service promotes the safety of business owners, employees and patrons, and often results in insurance savings for the property owner. During 2019, three TFD personnel were able to obtain certification as Fire Inspectors and Arson Investigators; and were able to establish an Infection Control Officer who oversees medical records for all public safety and public works staff.
