After approving the reinstatement of a fire marshal’s position in December, the Person County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a job description and funding for the position Monday. The position’s general statement of duties reads: “Performs technical and public safety work in providing fire prevention, investigations of suspicious fires, enforcement of local and state fire ordinances and codes, serving as a liaison with volunteer fire departments, federal, state, and county agencies in promoting overall fire prevention efforts within the county.” Based on previous discussions, the fire marshal was slated to undertake the fire investigations countywide alone, but County Manager Heidi York said that it would be best for the marshal to work along with the city of Roxboro’s fire investigations that the county currently contracts with for $500 per month.
