The Edmond Fire Investigations Unit (FIU) responds to all major fires in the city and is available 24 hours a day to investigate any incident where Incident Commanders request an investigator. The fire investigator's duties include structure fires, motor vehicle fires, burns, explosions, and the investigation and enforcement of all laws and statutes related to fires & investigations. The unit works closely with the Edmond Police Department and other local fire departments and law enforcement agencies with the common goal of eliminating incendiary fires. The Fire Investigation Unit tracks fires' causes to determine if trends are developing in our city. Suppose a particular fire trend is detected through the efforts of the Fire Investigation Unit. In that case, the problem can then be addressed through other Fire Prevention activities such as Code Enforcement and Public Education. Determining if a trend has developed is a critical function of the Fire Investigation Unit.
