State Fire Council

The State Fire Council is an administrative agency attached to the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DLIR) and recognized and considered to be Hawaii’s equivalent of the State Fire Marshals Office.

The State Fire Council is comprised of the four (4) county fire chiefs and five support staff positions and tasked with among other things; the adoption of the state fire code, administration of the state reduced ignition propensity cigarette  program, providing assistance with the application and administration of federal grants for the fire service, assisting and coordinating the statewide delivery of fire training programs, and to serve in an advisory capacity to the Governor and legislature on fire safety, prevention, and fire protection issues.

The goal of the State Fire Council is to develop and maintain a comprehensive fire service emergency management network for the protection of life, property, and the environment, throughout the State of Hawaii.
