State Fire Marshal

A Division of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety


Division policies

The policies listed below represent the State Fire Marshal Division's plan review, inspection and enforcement practices. These policies are not incumbent upon local jurisdictions; however, jurisdictions may adopt them for local use at their discretion.

The majority of the policies have not been updated to the 2015 Minnesota State Fire Code. The process to update will take some time to complete. When a policy has been updated, it will be noted with *2015 MSFC.

If you have questions about an existing policy, you can email the Fire Code Team​​.​
