The NH State Fire Marshal’s Office is charged by statute with ensuring compliance with the NH State Fire Code and the NH State Building Code through the review of plans prior to construction in the following types of projects:
- State owned property (not leased or rented).
- NH University System.
- County owned property (not leased or rented).
- Educational Occupancies.
- Healthcare occupancies.
- In locations where there is no fire chief or local building/code official.
Projects other than the ones outlined above are the responsibility of the local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) which will be the fire department or building department depending on the local rules and laws. As always, this office is available to those officials for specific questions and code clarifications.
Although the Office of the NH State Fire Marshal does not provide any endorsement or recommendation for any specific individual or firm, we do maintain a list of NH licensed Fire Protection Engineers. To view this list, click on the link below:
