Thomas Horner - Fire Official
James Merkel - Fire Inspector
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.
