    Default State Fire Marshal

    I am considering applying to the State Fire Marshal's Office in my state. I have been in the volunteer service for 10 years and have earned by A.A.S. in Criminal Justice. My state has two entry level positions for Assistant State Fire Marshal. The first is Assistant State Fire Marshal in Training which requires HS education and 4 yrs experience. The second is Assistant State Fire Marshal 1 which requires the same experience as the other or you can substitute two years of experience with the degree. I know the test has building code, safety code, firefighting and fireworks types of questions on it. Can anyone suggest any reading or code books which I can review to help prepare for the test? Any help on general Fire Marshal hiring processes is also appreciated.

    Thanks

    As far as building and fire codes go, you should investigate which codes your particular state uses. For a good starting point on the other topics you noted, you could try the following books:

    NFPA:
    Fire and Life Safety Inspection Manual
    Fire Protection Handbook (Two Volumes)
    Life Safety Code Handbook

    IFSTA
    Essentials of Firefighting 4th Ed.
    Building Construction Related to the Fire Service
    Fire Inspection and Code Enforcement

    Delmar
    Firefighters Handbook

    Best regards,
    John
