The Clayton Fire Department Bureau of Fire Prevention has been making annual fire prevention inspections of the schools, businesses, churches, high-rise buildings, hotels and universities for many years. In addition, the Bureau performs inspections and plan reviews for new construction and renovations. The Clayton Fire Department strives to assist the owners and occupants in providing a safe environment in which to live and work.

While we cannot prevent all fires from happening, we can strive to maintain a high level of fire safety and attempt to eliminate as many hazards as possible. The Board of Aldermen adopted the 2015 Fire Protection & Prevention Code on October 13, 2015, with an effective date of January 1, 2016. This was accomplished by passing Ordinance No. 6396 .

The City of Clayton's Fire Marshal issues permits, provides information for acceptance Inspections on new construction and what we look for when inspecting log books  during our annual inspections.  You can install a Knox Box on the outside of the property accessible by only members of the Clayton Fire Department.
