Payment Policy

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

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 certified bank check 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.
