Responsibilities The Fire Marshal's responsibility is to create a fire-safe environment through the enforcement of fire prevention codes, public education, and training. The key is prevention - to save lives and property by preventing fires before they start and to identify and eliminate hazards that are the catalyst for fires.
This goal is accomplished through building plan reviews, public fire education, fire inspections, fire investigations, and code enforcement.
Aggressively investigating criminal acts, such as arson
Conducting plan reviews for residential subdivisions, site developments, new construction, fire protection systems, and gas well sites.
Handling fire safety programs
Performing inspections at all places where the public assembles (schools, businesses) to learn the layout of buildings and protect the safety of occupants and fire fighters
