Welcome to the Office of State Fire Marshal's Website
The Office of State Fire Marshal has regulatory responsibility to ensure compliance with state fire safety regulations. This is accomplished through inspection activities by deputy state fire marshals in the field and code consultation and plans review services provided by the Engineering Services Section.
A major goal of the Office of State Fire Marshal is to coordinate statewide fire safety efforts aimed at reducing fire fatalities in South Carolina. This is done in part by providing programs and services to any agency involved in community risk reduction efforts.
