The Kerrville Fire Marshal’s Office identifies and eliminates potential fire hazards and reduces the frequency and effects of fire through education, code administration, enforcement, plan review and fire origin/cause investigations, all of which are conducted in a cooperative, competent manner.
The strategy of the Fire Marshal’s Office is organized around the following critical mission areas:
• Fire Inspections: Fire Inspectors are responsible for the effective prevention of fires through periodic inspections of commercial and/or public buildings, licensed facilities and operations, and other buildings in the City of Kerrville.
• Fire Investigation: Arson/Fire Investigators are responsible for the effective investigation of fires and explosions in the City of Kerrville, also including fire records and juvenile intervention programs.
• Fire Prevention: The primary concern of this section of the Fire Marshal’s Office is saving of lives and property by preventing fires before they start. Fire prevention is accomplished by identification and elimination of the hazards that cause and support the spread of fire within the City of Kerrville. This goal is accomplished through public fire education, fire inspections, fire investigations and code enforcement.
