 The Fire Marshal's Office seeks to provide a safe working and living environment for residents, workers, and travelers within Loudoun County. Key aspects of the mission include:
  • Investigation into the origin and cause of fire- and explosive-related incidents in the county as well as offenses related to threats to burn and/or bomb
  • Investigation into the release of hazardous materials
  • Juvenile firesetter Intervention
  • Proactive public fire and life safety education programs
  • Rapid and professional emergency response
  • Reduction of fire risk through abatement of common fire prevention code violations

The office is organized into three primary sections:

There are several special operational programs, such as the Bomb Squad and the Canine Program, however these are collateral responsibilities assigned to regular staff, which transcend section boundaries.
