1.1* Scope. This standard identifies the professional level of performance required for Fire Marshal, specifically identifying the minimum job performance requirements (JPRs) necessary to perform as a Fire Marshal. A.1.1 In developing this standard, the technical committee considered the various roles and duties of local, county, state, federal, provincial, and private sector Fire Marshals. The committee was also aware that many times the Fire Marshal is the only person in the organization and can be performing the specific requirements held by others in larger organizations. In those cases, it is the intent of the technical committee that they also comply with the appropriate professional qualifications standards, such as NFPA 1021, NFPA 1031, NFPA 1033, and NFPA 1035, and at the appropriate levels. It is also the understanding of the committee that not all Fire Marshals perform all of the duties listed in the document, and therefore certain portions of the document could or could not be applicable. It is incumbent upon the management of the organization establishing the Fire Marshal or equivalent title to identify the responsibilities, duties, and expectations of the position. It is recognized that some duties performed by Fire Marshals, such as law enforcement functions, are not included in this standard. The committee strongly believes that the comprehensive approach to prevention is the most effective, and users of the document should consider implementing the sections of this standard that were not determined to be part of the core requirements.
