About the Fire Marshal

The Fire Marshal’s Office (FMO) seeks to provide a safe working and living environment for residents, workers, and travelers within Loudoun County. The FMO is comprised of a team of civilians and sworn law enforcement officers to ensure division goals are met.

  • The division investigates the origin of fires, explosive related incidents, as well as investigations into hazardous materials. 
  • We strive to reduce the risk of fire through abatement of common fire prevention code violations. 
  • The public fire and life safety educational programs and juvenile firesetter intervention program are additional resources we deploy to help ensure the fire and life safety of the citizens and visitors of Loudoun County.
  • 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.
