The Fire Marshals Division is headed by the Fire Marshal and is responsible for enforcement of fire codes, and building inspections.
The Code Enforcement arm of the Fire Marshal’s Division is responsible for inspecting the hundreds of buildings in Richmond to ensure that each structure complies with the fire codes that have been established on the federal, state, and local level. Those inspectors systematically inspect – and if necessary, re-inspect – each of the buildings in Richmond to ensure that the buildings meet fire codes and that the public is safe when visiting the building. The inspectors are routinely called to fire scenes to issue citations for violations of fire code that on-scene firefighters might discover after responding to a fire.
