Staff from the Office of the County Fire Marshal would like to apprise
or remind you of important fire safety changes to the 2006 State Fire
Prevention Code that may affect your planning of events that include,
but are not limited to, concerts, carnivals, fairs and other types of
public gatherings for entertainment or amusement. There are important
Fire Safety Requirements pertaining to cooking operations, crowd
managers, general fire safety and tents.
The Fire Marshal's Office has been inspecting and assisting with the planning of many events held in Frederick County each year. If your organization is having or planning an event in which the public will be attending, please contact the County Fire Marshal’s Office to ensure compliance with the Fire Prevention Code and to prevent unnecessary delays or problems associated with the event.
It is the intent of the County Fire Marshal’s Office to conduct random fire safety inspections of these types of gatherings to insure public safety and compliance with current adopted fire codes.
