Stephen Cox was sworn-in as the new Indiana State Fire Marshal today among a group of firefighting leadership from around the state.
The brief swearing-in ceremony was held at the Brownsburg Fire Territory Training Facility and was attended by firefighters and EMS officials from across the state. Cox officially began his role as State Fire Marshal on Monday.
Gov. Eric J. Holcomb appointed Cox as the new Indiana State Fire Marshal on October 1st. As fire chief of the South Bend Fire Department, Cox created a fire training center which has enabled the department to build a robust training program to support the South Bend department as well as other departments in the state.
Cox takes over for Jim Greeson, who served as Indiana State Fire Marshal for 11 years and retired in September.
The fire marshal leads the Indiana Department of Homeland Security Division of Fire and Building Safety. The division investigates suspicious fires, promotes fire prevention and enforces fire and building safety codes in all public buildings, among other duties.
