The median fire loss within the City of Conroe, over the last 5 years, was approximately $1.2 million dollars. Far too often, these fires have injured or taken the lives of one or more of our fellow citizens. To combat this destruction, the Conroe Fire Department has put into place a comprehensive fire prevention program that consists of the four basic activities of the Conroe Fire Department: public education, fire and building code enforcement, rapid response to emergencies, and a thorough investigation of all fire causes.
The Fire Marshal’s Office (FMO) is the division of the Conroe Fire Department that manages public education, fire and building code enforcement, and investigation of all fire causes. Specific responsibilities, pertaining to these functions, include design and delivery of public relations and public education programs, public information, periodic fire and life safety inspection of existing commercial buildings, new commercial construction plan review and inspections, fire origin and cause investigation, and arson investigation. The Fire Chief assigns all personnel to the FMO, with five currently assigned to the Division.
