Spring Weather

Spring is truly upon us and that bring the likelihood of severe weather in our area. Everyone should have a basic knowledge of severe weather safety rules and have a severe weather plan in place. Knowing what to do, or where to go when severe weather threatens can be the difference between life and death. 

Prepare now! Have an action plan for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, high winds, flooding, and lightning. 

The National Weather Service has several resources available to keep an eye on upcoming severe weather possibilities. The National Weather Service forecast for Fenton has good information. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) is an excellent resource with a wealth of information. As always, local news outlets are ideal sources because of their focus on the St. Louis area. 

Message from the Fire Marshal, January 2015

The Fenton Fire Protection District, as it relates to building permits, is responsible for ensuring that fire and life safety is provided and maintained in the buildings located within our jurisdiction. In our continued effort to maintain our commitment, we have adopted new/revised Fire Prevention codes as well as our Building Codes

These changes are effective as of January 1, 2015. Please visit our website at www.fentonfire.org to review the newly adopted Ordinances. In order to view the revised building codes you must have or install Adobe Reader. The Ordinances are as follows:

  • Ordinance Number: 2014-01 Revised Building Code
  • Ordinance Number: 2014-02 Revised Fire Prevention Code

We have also eliminated Permit and Inspection requirements of residential construction, additions or alterations. However, upon request we will perform plan review and conduct inspections for fire and life safety on any residential construction, additions or alterations at no charge respectively.

Copies of these new ordinances can be sent via e-mail when requested.

Thank you for your time and continued support of the Fenton Fire District.
