State Fire Marshal Division

The State Fire Marshal Division (SFM), established in 1911, is the oldest of the six divisions within the Department of Public Safety. SFM was initially created to collect statistics on fire in Iowa and to develop fire safety regulations. Through promotion and enforcement of fire safety regulations, building code provisions and arson investigation, the five bureaus which comprise this division continue to have responsibility for reducing the loss of life and property by fire. Presently the Division has 27 sworn officers and 44 civilian employees.

The division is comprised of five (5) bureaus:
