Fire Prevention - Office of the Fire Marshal

The principles of Fire Prevention are:

Engineering, Education, Enforcement, Additional Fire Safety Resources

The office of the Fire Marshal is responsible for all aspects of enforcing the Connecticut Fire Safety Code as adopted by the Connecticut General Statutes (Chapter 541). From the initial design phase up to and including annual fire inspections, the Fire Marshal's Office is there to assist the public, developers and business owners in complying with the minimum requirements of the code.

For code questions, schedule an inspection or to request information regarding an investigation, please contact the office during normal business hours M-F 9-4 at 203-254-4720.

Not just Fire Prevention - Life Safety

Below is a list of other areas that Fairfield Fire Rescue and the Office of the Fire Marshal take an active role in.

One and Two Family Dwellings - A man's home is his Castle, but in Fairfield, the castle must have smoke detectors. In March of 1981, the Smoke Detectors of the Fairfield Fire Safety Code was enacted. This local ordinance requires working smoke detectors to be outside of all sleeping areas and at the top of all stairways including the basement stairs. After being "on the books" for ten years, firefighters found that approximately 50% of the homes did not have adequate coverage. A summary of the ordinance and examples are given on the Smoke Detector Page.

Hazardous Materials - at the workplace, transportation and bulk storage, the Fire Marshal ensures that hazardous materials processes and storage are done within the law.

Propane inspection program - A hazard to everyone, old and leaking tanks have caused fires and explosions. Fairfield Fire Rescue provides free inspections of propane tanks to ensure safe operation. Additionally, residents may discard smaller tanks for a small fee at the Town Transfer Station on Richard White Way.

Fire Prevention in the Schools and Station tours - A visit to the fire house is not just a fun trip, it is a learning experience. Children who listen to firefighters are taught critical life saving skills such as Stop, Drop and Roll and dialing 911. Click here for information on scheduling a tour.
