Important Site INformation

The Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal's website consists of literally hundreds of pages of information that are shared with the public to assist the citizens of Louisiana. While utilizing the navigational menus will help you find what you need, there are some pages we have created that may help you in quickly assessing pertinent information or documents.

A helpful Site Guide has been constructed to provide links to our most oft-visited pages, including the Fire Marshal's Act and our Plan Review Application pages. If you are seeking information on training offered, recommended, or required by our office, please visit our Training page.

Citizens looking to contact the Fire Marshal's Office may do so using the form on our Contacts page and are encouraged to join our Mailing List to stay abreast of the latest agency changes.
