Builders, architects, and homeowners can reference the linked PDF Fire Standards for information on conforming to the adopted fire codes and standards of the Kentfield Fire Protection District.

Fire prevention is a team effort between the Kentfield Fire Protection District Fire Prevention Bureau, Staff Firefighters, Volunteer Firefighters and the members of our community. We are dedicated to the protection of life and property for all.

Through extensive plan checks and inspections, the Kentfield Fire Protection District strives to ensure fire safety in the home and businesses. Building standards, regulations, and plan check fees can be easily accessed through our website. During the warm summer months, vegetation fuel reduction inspections are conducted on vacant lots and home properties to ensure compliance with the defensible 100 feet space requirements. Your adherence to all these fire prevention standards in and around your home enables our Firefighters to provide the best possible protection to you and your family in the event of fire.
