Preventing fire before it starts is paramount in effectively protecting life and property. Our Fire Prevention Division focuses on maintaining a proactive approach to fire safety through public education, business and multi-residential inspections, and construction plan review. Captain Abby Pedigo is head of the Fire Prevention Division and is additionally designated as the City of St. Augustine’s Fire Marshal. The division is responsible for interpreting and enforcing the Florida Fire Prevention Code as mandated by Florida Statute 633 and Florida Administrative Code 69A. Our goal is to partner with residents and business owners to mitigate fire and life safety emergencies and provide education towards community risk reduction.
