The local fire marshal is required to perform a variety of important duties. In 2000, the number of fires decreased across the United States, however, the number of civilian deaths increased more than 13% over the same period. The major strategies for reducing these risks are implemented through the duties of the local fire marshal.
Each community must recognize their local responsibilities and afford the fire marshal the necessary resources to fulfill the statutory mandates.
Fire marshals are responsible for the enforcement of many of the sections found in Chapter 541 of the Connecticut General Statutes, as well as numerous codes that are promulgated under the provision of these statutes. The local fire marshal is required to annually inspect all buildings and facilities of public service and occupancies regulated by the Connecticut State Fire Safety Code. The State Fire Safety Code covers all occupancies except one and two family dwellings and premises used for manufacturing.
Additional duties imposed by the Connecticut General Statutes on the local fire marshals are as follows.
To contact the Fire Marshal, Noel Waite, please call 860-450-6089 or you may call the Town Hall at 860-455-0073 during business hours.
