Fire Marshal Office

The East Norriton Township Fire Marshal's Office conducts fire safety inspections of all types of occupied buildings and buildings under construction and renovation except for one and two family homes in the Township. The inspected buildings include schools, hospitals, nursing homes, day care centers, restaurants, businesses, stores and hotels. All of these buildings must comply with the Township's Fire Code, the International Fire Code and NFPA.

The Fire Marshal's Office works closely with the Police Department, the Code Enforcement Department, and various County and State agencies. The Fire Marshal's Office also interacts with the Fire Department on various items including advising the fire department of the hazards that the department may encounter in a fire or other incident.

In addition to doing fire safety inspections, the Fire Marshal and Assistant Fire Marshal provide fire safety information to business owners, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and members of the general public. The Fire Marshal's Office is vigilant in their duty to identify and advise what the fire safety problems are in a particular building and how those problems represent a hazard to people and property. Education and public awareness are two of the biggest factors in preventing fire-related deaths, injuries, and property damage.
