Fire Prevention and Public Education

Fire safety inspections and public education activities are a large part of every employee’s job at Brentwood Fire & Rescue. Code enforcement is a valuable method of preventing fires, which prevents death and injury to our citizens and our firefighters.

Division Chief Nancy Jones serves as the City's Fire Marshal.  She began her Fire Service career with the City of Brentwood in 1987 as a firefighter before being promoted to Engineer. She was the first paid female firefighter in the City of Brentwood and Williamson County, Tennessee. Nancy earned her Associate in Science Degree from the University of the State of New York in 1992 and Paramedic Certification from Volunteer State Community College in 1995. She was promoted to the position of Fire Marshal in 2002. She continued her education and received her Bachelor of Professional Studies – Fire Administration/Fire Prevention from the University of Memphis in 2005.  In 2009, Nancy obtained the Certified Fire and Explosion Investigator (CFEI) designation from the National Association of Fire Investigators.

Fire-Prevention and Education-Tour Reaching Out to Our Community

Did you know that every year approximately 3,500 Americans die in a fire? Or that unintentional injuries kill 6,000 children and permanently disable 120,000 kids every year? To us, these figures are more than statistics and represent the faces of individuals that we meet every day. Brentwood Fire & Rescue is trying to change these numbers by aggressively educating the public about what they can do to take responsibility for their safety.

 Citizen’s Fire Academy Citizens Fire Academy

Every day firefighters in the city respond to emergencies. Do you ever wonder what the fire engine is going to as it passes by with lights flashing and sirens blaring? Or what it would be like to be inside the cab as it responded?

As part of our effort to teach the community what we do, the Citizens Fire Academy was created to allow our citizens to get a hands-on glimpse of what it is like to be a firefighter.
