Fire Marshal's Office


The Fire Marshal's Office is responsible for Emergency Management and Protective Services in Jacksonville Beach. This includes performing Fire and Life Safety inspections, the reviewing of building plans and special event permits, investigations, the education of our residents in preventing fires and planning for natural and man made disasters. It is our belief that it is both safer and more economical to prevent a fire from occurring and to be prepared for a disaster.
