Fire Marshal's Office

The most effective way to fight a fire is to prevent it before it starts. For this reason, the City of Celina has adopted codes and regulations aimed at making our buildings and homes safer from the ravages of fire. These requirements will result in fewer fires, less damaging fires, and an improved insurance rating.
