Our Mission is to provide an efficient delivery of services to improve the safety and quality of life for the Citizens of DeSoto.
The Fire Marshal’s Office provides services such as inspections for commercial and retail buildings to ensure the safety and well-being of the occupants, as well as the customers.
Certificates of Occupancy inspections are done when a new business opens or a business changes owners or use.
Fire investigations are the responsibility of the Fire Marshal’s Office. If the fire is found to be arson once the cause and origin are determined, a criminal investigation is begun.
