The Fire Marshal's Office is responsible for the protection of life and property through code enforcement, plans review, fire inspections, and fire cause determination.
An Important Message From the Fire Marshal’s Office
Effective Sept. 16, 2013, the City of Austin has adopted the 2012 International Fire Code with local amendments. Subsequently the Austin Fire Department has revised the Fire Protection Criteria Manual through the City’s rule making process. Copies of either the ordinance or the criteria manual can be obtained from the office of the City Clerk (first floor of City Hall) or from the Fire Marshal's Office (second floor of One Texas Center). Additionally, several new permits have been approved and are being required. Please see Approved Fee Schedule for a complete listing.
