The Compliance Engine

The San Marcos Fire Department has instituted a new process for service providers who inspect and test fire protection systems. Effective April 15, 2023, all compliant & non-compliant fire protection systems test reports are required to be sent to the San Marcos Fire Department electronically by your respective organization via The Compliance Engine’s online system.

The San Marcos Fire Department is dedicated to delivering 100% compliance with our adopted Fire Code. This web-based service will aggregate, track, and streamline the collection of compliance data of our jurisdiction’s systems. Property owners will receive timely proactive notifications of their testing requirements, and the San Marcos Fire Department will gain the ability to better mitigate the risk in our community by improving public safety to our citizens. 

All service providers who inspect or test fire protection systems within the San Marcos Fire Department’s jurisdiction are required to register and submit all test, inspection, and service reports via The Compliance Engine.  All reports must be submitted in accordance with the testing schedule and requirements outlined in our adopted fire code.

This proven process requires the service provider pay a nominal filing fee at the time of submittal. There is no fee to register your company with The Compliance Engine and once registered, pricing is viewable under the AHJ icon in The Compliance Engine. Licensed fire protection system contractors can register online with The Compliance Engine.
