Fire Marshal's Office
Our mission: It is our duty to prevent injuries, and the loss of life and
property by providing the citizens we serve a safe living environment through
the professional applications of code applications, investigations, education
and intervention programs.
Code applications are for fire and life safety issues in new construction.
This involves building plan reviews and on site inspections. The Fire Marshal
and/or Inspector look at egress windows, smoke detector placement, fire
blocking, fire alarms, fire sprinklers, occupant loads and most importantly
electrical installations in buildings and docks. The Fire Marshal also assists
the Camden County Health Department with fire safety inspections for lodging
The Fire Marshal's Office is also in charge of determining the origin and
cause of fires in the district whether it might be accidental or arson.
The Fire Marshal's Office is in charge of fire and safety prevention programs
for all ages of the public, and also an intervention program called Youth
Fire-setter Intervention, this program provides us with the tools to change the
factors that lead to fire setting.
