The Bayonne Fire Prevention Bureau is a versatile department responsible for enforcing the Uniform Fire Code of the State of New Jersey and the Fire Protection Subcode requirements of the N.J. Uniform Construction Code.

The Uniform Fire Code was established through the Uniform Fire Safety Act to assure that fire safety provisions in existing buildings are being properly maintained and that specific target hazards are retrofitted with fire protection systems, fire resistive construction or other fire safety features that the state has identified as being beneficial for the health, safety and welfare of the public. Buildings and associated occupancies are listed in two categories: Life Hazard Uses and Non Life Hazard Uses (LHU's) according to a schedule in the Fire Act that weighs various hazards and risks of the occupancy.

Occupancies classified as Life Hazard Uses must be registered with the State of New Jersey, Division of Fire Safety. The Bureau is charged with inspecting all of the buildings and structures in the City, except for owner occupied one and two family dwellings at least once a year. Buildings registered as Life Hazard Uses are often subject to more inspections.

The Uniform Fire Code also establishes Fire Permit requirements. The permits are issued for hazardous activities and public events. Permits must be secured from the Fire Official before the activity begins.

The Bureau is also responsible for the investigation of fires within the City, perform site plan reviews of proposed construction, and investigate complaints to fire safety violations and life safety concerns.

The Bureau inspects residential occupancies upon sale or change of tenancy to insure compliance with the states Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector regulations.

Pursuant to the Fire Subcode requirements of the Uniform Construction Code of the State of N.J. the Fire Prevention Bureau must review and inspect all newly constructed buildings and alterations to existing structures.
