Changes to the Fire Investigation Act made at 425 ILCS/25 simplify what is required by a fire chief to notify owners of property violations of the “Life Safety Code”. Electronic mail notification can also be used, in addition to those means used in the past. The Act also reinforces the concept that the Office of the State Marshal and the local fire chief have concurrent jurisdiction regarding investigation and enforcement.

My first involement with the fire service came over thirty years ago, when I was asked to serve as a trustee for the fire protection district serving the community where I live. Since then, my practice has grown to representing numerous fire departments and ambulance services throughout central Illinois. I have lectured and written extensively on legal issues involving the fire service, and taught classes on fire science law at our local community college. Prepared by John T.
