State Fire Commissioner Home

About OSFC The Pennsylvania State Fire Commissioner’s Office had its beginning in 1976 with Governor Milton Shapp’s appointment of the state’s first fire commissioner. In 1981 Governor Richard Thornburgh reorganized the then-separate Fire Commissioner’s Office, State Fire School and Volunteer Loan Assistance Program as the Office of Fire Safety Services under the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency. The current Office of the State Fire Commissioner was created, by legislation, as a separate office in 1995 when Governor Tom Ridge signed Act 61 of 1995, The Fire Commissioner Act.

Under this legislation the Pennsylvania State Fire Commissioner is the official charged with meeting the diverse training, operational, and informational needs of the Commonwealth’s fire and emergency service community.
