The Fire Marshal is involved in the plan review process for new construction or renovation projects and is responsible for ensuring that Fire Code requirements are met before signing off on design plans. Other common fire prevention efforts include educational programs in Rock County schools, public information campaigns, smoke detector distribution programs, and outreach at public events. The Rock County Fire Marshal also investigates structure fires to determine their causes.
