All five Springfield Fire Department Fire Marshals received limited commissions through the U.S.Marshal’s Office on June 9, 2011, as part of a nationwide strategy giving them the ability to assist in investigations across jurisdictional boundaries. For example, if an explosion occurs in northern Arkansas, they can go to and assist in the investigation as needed.
