Need for Local Enforcement
As the service area of TCFR continues to grow in complexity and density, the intimate involvement of the local responding fire department becomes necessary. TCFR has recognized the need to couple fire code enforcement with fire suppression to provide a holistic approach to fire protection. TCFR resources provide the opportunity to deliver the best fire prevention services to the community.
