The Fire Marshal's Office is a division within the Code and Zoning Department.  The Fire Marshal is responsible for investigating the origin and cause, obtain and execute search documents, take evidence, and detain and question in the process of establishing cause and origin of all fires in Quakertown.

The primary goal of the Fire Marshal's Office is to prevent fires by assuring that all publicly occupied structures are maintained in accordance with nationally recognized fire safety standards.  The Fire Marshal provides assistance to the residents and business owners when faced with catastrophic events by developing and maintaining an emergency operations plan.

An Emergency Needs directory is available to allow residents with special needs the opportunity to provide specific information to emergency response agencies, so responders can plan to serve them more effectively in a disaster or other emergency.  Contact the Fire Marshal at the number above to be placed in the Emergency Needs Directory.  The information collected will not be available to the public.  It will be held securely and only accessed for the purpose of emergency response and planning.
