How to Report a Firefighter Fatality

In the event of a firefighter fatality in your area, immediately call the State Fire Marshal's Office at (512) 676-6800 (this is a 24-hour number). You will be greeted by a voice menu. You will be asked to press "2" to reach our answering service, which will take your name and number. Make sure you tell the answering service that you are reporting a firefighter fatality; a representative from the State Fire Marshal's Office will call you as quickly as possible.

Please have the following information ready when calling:

  1. Your name, department, and a telephone number where you can be contacted. If possible, please provide a cellular telephone number and/or your departmental radio dispatcher telephone number to assist us in contacting you.
  2. Time, date, and location of the fatal incident, as well as a brief description of the type of incident (structure fire, vehicle fire, wildland fire, etc.).
