The Wildwood Crest Fire Prevention and Inspection Bureau is responsible for the enforcement of the New Jersey State Uniform Fire Code for the Borough of Wildwood Crest. The primary goal of the Bureau is the health and safety of the Borough’s residents and visitors alike. In addition to conducting the required annual fire inspections of residential, educational, industrial, and commercial properties to ensure compliance with the fire code, the Bureau also conducts inspections of one- and two-family dwellings prior to any change in occupancy (sale, lease, etc.).
The Bureau enforces the State of New Jersey Hotel and Multiple Dwelling Law through the State Local Cooperative Housing Inspection Program (SLCHIP). The Fire Prevention Bureau staff also creates and delivers an annual fire prevention show to local schools in conjunction with local fire departments and several volunteers.
The Fire Prevention Bureau works closely with many other Borough Departments to ensure that the Borough of Wildwood Crest is one of the safest places to live or vacation.
