State Fire Marshal

The Office of the State Fire Marshal oversees fire, special effects, and life safety issues on State property. Fire safety officers or advisors assigned from a local jurisdiction may be required under provisions set by the Fire Marshal review.  Special effects, indoor filming, large crews, projectile pyrotechnics, and filming during fire season or in fire-sensitive areas are examples of activities that may warrant fire safety officer (FSO) or advisor (FSA) assignment.  Monitor fees are determined by and billed through the local jurisdiction.
