Fire Marshal’s Office


Our goal is to prevent, wherever possible, the loss of life and destruction of property within the fire district and to aid in preventing such losses before they occur. The Fire Marshal’s Office is responsible for fire code enforcement, investigating fires for origin and cause, and conducting routine inspections and plan reviews to ensure that new and existing structures meet current Fire Code standards. We also conduct inspections and acceptance testing on all new and upgraded fire protection systems in the district. This office also oversees all Fire Prevention and Education programs provided in the district. We will also conduct, free of charge, any Home Fire Inspection to help you keep your home Fire Safe.
