Welcome to the Office of the Fire Marshal

The primary duty of the Bexar County Fire Marshal's Office (BCFMO) is to develop, foster and promote methods of protecting the lives and property of the citizens of Bexar County from fires, both natural and man-made hazards, and other significant events through the direct coordination and action with other public safety, private, and business communities. The BCFMO staff takes pride in the execution of this responsibility with the highest standards of professionalism, efficiency, integrity and accountability.

The BCFMO consists of five functions: Fire Code Compliance & Enforcement, Fire Prevention & Inspections, Fire/Arson Investigations, Fire Dispatch Communications, and Community Outreach Initiatives. The BCFMO staff provides rapid response to requests for investigations, inspections, fire code compliance, and emergency management assistance.
