Fire Marshal

What We Do

The City of Greer Fire Marshal’s Office is responsible for fire code enforcement, investigating fires for origin and cause, and conducting regular inspections to ensure that new and existing structures meet fire code standards. The goal of the office is to protect the community and its residents from devastating and potentially fatal fires through educational programs and active code enforcement.

The office also oversees the safe transport and use of explosives and liquid petroleum gas, the proper use of fireworks, and ensures safety in special occupancy situations.

Our Staff

Fire Marshal Scott Keeley and Deputy Fire Marshals Carl Howell, Randall Hipp and John Polson are all experienced firefighters.  Although members of the City’s fire department, they work from Greer City Hall in coordination with the Building and Development Standards Department.
