The general purpose of this code is to protect the human and physical resources of the Reservation from injury or damage due to fire or related hazards, while conserving the Reservation's human and financial resources by placing adequate emphasis on fire prevention and by requiring that the Tribal Fire Department be financially self-sufficient. Further it is the intent of this code to regulate building and construction activities to insure that standards are developed and enforced - and necessary fees established - so as to protect the public health, safety, and welfare of the residents of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. Finally, by this code the Tribal Fire Department is designated as the lead agency for inspections and enforcement of regulations affecting the transport of hazardous materials through the Reservation.
