Payment Policy

Payment for any services performed by the State Fire Marshal’s Office must be in the form of a business check, bank check, or money order made payable to "State of Rhode Island General Treasurer." We do not accept cash, credit cards, or personal checks.

You will be notified immediately if your check is returned due to insufficient funds, at which point you will have 24 hours to bring a bank check or money order to the Fire Marshal's Office in the amount that the returned check was for, plus an additional $25 processing fee for each returned check.
