Fire Prevention

Thomas Horner -  Fire Official



The mission of the Hazlet Township Bureau of Fire Prevention is to prevent fires and minimize the risk of life and property loss through education and fire code enforcement.


Our primary responsibility is enforcement of the New Jersey Uniform Fire Code and other local fire safety regulations.  This includes the inspection of all Life Hazard Use Properties (ie: gas stations, schools, nursing homes, daycare facilities, auto repair/auto body shops, places of assembly and large retail operations) and the inspection of Non-Life Hazard businesses, offices and multi-family residences. Residential inspections are conducted for any change of ownership and/or occupancy.





The Bureau of Fire Prevention derives its primary funding from Life Hazard and Non-Life Hazard Use registration fees, fire safety permits, and inspection fees.  All moneys collected are solely used to enforce the New Jersey Uniform Fire Code and other related programs.  This includes materials and expenses related to fire inspections, investigations, prevention, and educational programs
