Chief, Fire Prevention Bureau

         James Dusseau

Welcome, The Maumee Fire Prevention Bureau has a long-standing history of excellence in protection of the lives and property of the individuals who live and work in  the City of Maumee. It is the cooperation of the businesses and their employees with the Bureau staff that makes the community a safe place to work and live. The essence of a safer community from the threat of fire via fire prevention activities is far less costly than fire suppression. The Fire Prevention Bureau consists of the following personnel: Bureau Chief Brandon Loboschefski, Inspectors Tom King and Jim Dusseau. More inspectors can be pooled from the ranks of the Fire Division. Any Inspector who is employed by the Maumee Fire Division must meet State of Ohio requirements to be a Fire Safety Inspector. 

The Fire Prevention Bureau duties include, but are not limited to the following:  inspection of structures for enforcement of the applicable fire and building codes, review of structural drawings for fire protection, assist with preplanning of structures for emergencies, fire and arson investigations, issue of fire safety permits, fire safety classes, talks and demonstrations, tours of the Fire Station.

The Maumee Fire Prevention Bureau averages over 3,000 fire safety inspections, and numerous classes and tours. Home fire safety inspections are done upon request of the occupant.
