LOCAL FIRE MARSHAL DUTIES

We are bringing to your attention the many varied and important duties that are required of and performed by the Old Saybrook Fire Marshal.

Each year, the number of fires, as well as deaths and traumatic injuries from fire, increase throughout the country. I cannot emphasize strongly enough the importance of the duties of the local fire marshals as they relate to life safety and protection of property from fire within the community.


Each community must recognize the responsibilities vested at the local level and should afford the local fire marshal the necessary assistance and cooperation required to fulfill their statutory mandates.


Local fire marshals are responsible for the enforcement of many of the sections found in Chapter 541 of the Connecticut General Statutes, as well as numerous codes that are promulgated under the provision of these statutes.

It is required that each local fire marshal inspect each calendar year, in the interest of public safety, all buildings and facilities of public service and all occupancies regulated by the Fire Safety Code within his/her jurisdiction.

The Connecticut State Fire Safety Code covers all occupancies except one and two family dwellings and premises used for manufacturing. Occupancies covered are listed below.
