|North Carolina State Fire Prevention Code
The Sampson County Fire Marshal’s Office is a division of Emergency Services and conducts inspections throughout the county and in each municipality. Effective July 1, 2016, several municipalities will assume responsibility for conducting fire prevention inspection services within the corporate limits and their established Extra Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). Please refer to the Area of Service chart below. The Sampson County Inspections Department will continue to serve all areas. The provisions of the fire code apply to all new and existing structures and conditions except those specifically exempted such as single family dwellings and certain farm buildings.
The Fire Marshal’s Office issues construction and operational permits required by the fire code, conducts plan reviews for new construction, and inspects and permits other activities such as flammable liquid tank installations and removals, erecting tents or air supported structures, carnivals and fairs, and firework displays. The 2012 International Fire Code with the North Carolina Amendments are enforced throughout the county. The Fire Marshal’s Office also conducts inspections for In Home Day Cares, Foster Homes, and Therapeutic Homes. The office works closely with the Sampson County Inspections Department to ensure all structures are constructed and maintained to meet the minimum standards with respect to life safety.
