Office of the Fire Marshal

Fire Administration buildingApproximately every four minutes there is a fire in the United States, causing over ten billion dollars in fire damage annually, with over 100,000 injuries and 3,600 deaths.

Fire prevention plays an important role in the fire organization. People are simply not aware that prevention is the first step in fire suppression. While it is not our job to put the fire out, it is our job to prevent them from occurring through education, plan review, training, & on site inspections.

The Office of the Fire Marshal is located at our fire department headquarters, east end of Station 47, on the corner of Hillside and Sixth St. Our business hours are Monday – Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
