WHAT WE DO

It is the mission of the Office of The Fire Marshal to protect our citizens, visitors and their property from the perils of fire, explosions, unsafe construction and other hazardous conditions. This mission will be accomplished through fire prevention education, fire investigations and compliance inspections following the applicable regulations of the Town of Guilford and the State of Connecticut. We will actively participate with our community, serve as role models, and strive to effectively and efficiently utilize all resources made available, to provide safety and excellent customer service to the citizens and visitors of the Town of Guilford. Fire prevention is carried out by speaking to civic groups, schools, town councils, community groups, and others on the subject of fire prevention and emergency operations. The Office of The Fire Marshal also assists The Guilford Fire Department with conducting pre-plan evaluations of most occupanies in town. This process entails the collection of important data about the building for firefighters to use during emergency operations.
