The State Fire Marshal is responsible for enforcing state laws relating to the storage, sale, and use of combustibles and explosives, installation and maintenance of automatic or other fire alarms and fire extinguishing equipment, and for inspections of State buildings, public and private schools, child care facilities, and licensed liquor establishments.
In 2023, the 68th Legislative Assembly approved legislation that moved the Office of the State Fire Marshal from the Office of the Attorney General to the Insurance Department.
