Fire Marshal

Welcome to the Office of the
Hays County Fire Marshal
 
 

 

The primary mission of the Hays County Fire Marshal’s Office (HCFMO) is to protect the lives and property of the citizens of Hays County from fires, natural and man-made hazards, and other significant events by coordinating directly with other public safety agencies, residents and the business community. The staff of the HCFMO executes this responsibility with pride and under the highest standards of professionalism, efficiency, integrity and accountability. 

The HCFMO comprises three functions: Fire Code Compliance and Enforcement; Fire Prevention and Inspections; and Fire/Arson Investigations.  As a division of the Hays County Office of Emergency Services, the HCFMO provides rapid response to requests for investigations, inspections, fire code compliance, and emergency management assistance.
