​​​​​​​​​​​​The Fire Prevention Bureau is responsible for providing inspection services to the community of Ann Arbor as well as investigating all complex, fatal, and suspicious fires including all arsons and fire-related crimes within the City of Ann Arbor. Determining the origin and cause of a fire plays an integral role in preventing future incidents. Bureau personnel remain on call 24 hours a day to respond to fire incidents.
