BATON ROUGE, La. (Press Release) – Following the March 13th proclamation by Gov. John Bel Edwards, aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19 in Louisiana, the Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal (SFM) is advising the public about how best to continue their business needs with the agency.
- Beginning Monday, March 16, all SFM offices, including Headquarters in Baton Rouge, will be offering limited walk-in services to the public. Electronic communications for Plan Review, Inspections and Licensing, that ordinarily occur through the SFM’s Information Management System (IMS), should continue and are encouraged.
