How Can We Help You?

Fire Prevention

The goal of the Hinsdale's Fire Prevention Bureau is to provide a safe environment for the residents, businesses, and its' visitors. Historically this has been conducted through annual fire inspections, the reviewing of building plans, and proper code enforcement. In addition, we believe a fire inspection should include education relating to the prevention of fire and a review of the fire protection equipment. It should not always be about looking for violations.

Fire Prevention Bureau Staff:
  • Deputy Chief Jon Carlson
  • Fire Inspector Brian Sible
To help achieve the bureau's goal, we encourage participation and questions regarding the planning of building evacuations, prevention questions, and in preparing for other types of emergencies. For this reason, we play a very active role in the crisis planning for District 181, Hinsdale Central High School, Hinsdale Adventist Academy, and St. Isaac Jogues. This means that every school within Hinsdale has a crisis plan in place with critical input from both the police and fire departments. Just as important, each school participates in annual drills and training.

In 2022, the Fire Prevention Bureau completed a total of 950 inspection activities including 446 inspections, 129 re-inspections, 64 acceptance tests, 31 consultations, 189 follow-up inspections and 91 plan reviews.
