The Fire Mashal's Office provides sites, building, and fire protection systems plan review, issues various permits, conducts construction related inspections, safety inspections, operational inspections, code enforcement, and fire investigations.
Our fire inspectors, plan examiners, and investigators are certified by the State of Georgia through the Fire Standards and Training Council with several staff also being deputized by the State Fire Marshal's Office. They work closely with other city, county, and state agencies to ensure code compliance and provide technical assistance in the application, enforcement, and interpretation of codes and standards.
The Fire Marshal's Office mission is accomplished by personnel who apply fire prevention laws under O.C.G.A. title 25. This includes the Rules & Regulations of the State Fire Marshal, International Fire Code (IFC), adopted editions of the National Fire Codes (NFPA), and the ADA & Georgia accessibility codes.
The Fire Marshal's Office seeks to reduce losses to life and property from fire and help ensure lower property insurance costs, foster economic development, lower the number of severity of firefighter injuries, and increase the quality of life for Perry citizens and visitors.
