Thank you for visiting the State Fire Marshal’s Office website. Our mission is to provide inspection services, conduct investigations of fires and explosions, prevent the commission of arson and related crimes, protect lives and property from fire and explosions, and provide visitors and citizens of the state a safe environment in which to live, work and play.

We accomplish this by means of one office located in the downtown area of Montgomery where myself along with the Assistant State Fire Marshals reside.  Along side us are Deputy Fire Marshals who are strategically located around the state and work assigned territories.

If you feel that we may be able to assist you in any way possible, please do not hesitate to contact us here.

Alabama State Fire Marshal, Edward Paulk


From the Federal Emergency Management Agency, "Tornadoes are nature’s most violent storms. Spawned from powerful thunderstorms, tornadoes can cause fatalities and devastate a neighborhood in seconds.......Damage paths can be in excess of one mile wide and 50 miles long. Every state is at some risk from this hazard. Some tornadoes are clearly visible, while rain or nearby low-hanging clouds obscure others. Occasionally, tornadoes develop so rapidly that little, if any, advance warning is possible."  For more information, click here.
