The Deer Park Fire Marshal's Office (DPFMO) is a principal component in the effort to protect against loss of life and property in our city. The DPFMO focuses its efforts by proactively enforcing the city's Fire Code to ensure that existing commercial buildings remain fire-safe, by educating both the business community as well as the community at large in fire safety procedures and practices, and by providing technical expertise to the city's Building Department and Building Inspections Division on life-safety systems installed in new and remodeled buildings.

Our responsibilities also include responding to fires to identify the origin and cause of accidental and intentionally set fires in order to prevent future fires. To determine fire origin and cause an examination and excavation of the fire scene is conducted. The fire scene is documented, evidence is collected, and interviews of owners, occupants, bystanders, witnesses, victims, and informants are conducted. We design fire safety education around the fire origin and cause that we obtain.
We are a team of Fire Prevention Professionals dedicated to protecting the lives of the citizens and the visitors to the City of Deer Park by providing the highest quality of fire prevention, fire prevention education, fire investigations through the enforcement of the current adopted fire code.
