The Division of Fire Safety's mission is to protect the public and fire service through coordinated efforts in Code Enforcement, Fire Service Training, Public Education, Hazardous Materials Response, Fire Investigation and Urban Search and Rescue. These efforts maximize life safety and property conservation and minimize environmental impacts due to fire, natural disasters and other emergencies in the State of Vermont.
The Division of Fire Safety annually publishes the Report of the State Fire Marshal. This report is a statistical analysis of fire and emergency incidents statewide with other fire safety information. It is designed to equip the fire service and others with information about fire problems in Vermont.
