Fire Prevention

Do you know that Tennessee ranks 11th in the United States in fire deaths? Over 3000 people die annually in fires.

A structure fire occurs every 63 seconds in the United States and a home fire occurs every 87 seconds.

Fire Prevention for the Crossville is broken into two equally important areas: Fire Inspections and Fire Safety Education. 

Our inspections division consists of  eight (8) Tennessee Certified Fire Inspectors who perform fire and life safety inspections of new and existing buildings according to the adopted Fire Codes of Crossville. In addition, fire crews perform annual preplans of businesses to ensure that the fire department is prepared to efficiently respond to an emergency at your buisness or critical infrastructure. 

The Crossville Fire Department is proud to offer fire education in the local shools and in community businesses. The fire department receives educational materials for distribution in schools from the National Fire Safety Council.  We offer fire education in the classroom, fire station tours, free home fire safety inspections and local business fire extinguisher training.  

Crossville Fire is proud to partner with the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office in the “Get Alarmed, TN” smoke detector campaign. The program is a grant-funded fire safety education and smoke alarm installation program administered by the TN State Fire Marshal’s Office launched in 2012. Crossville, Cumberland County, and Fairfield Fire Departments partnered together and have installed over 2000 smoke detectors throughout the community.
