Governor reappoints Jeffrey K. Smith to the Louisiana State Fire Prevention Board of Review

In June 2017, Governor John Bel Edwards reappointed Jeffrey K. Smith, AIA to the State Fire Prevention Board of Review.

The Fire Prevention Board of Review is established to evaluate alternatives to fire prevention or protection laws and regulations established by the fire marshal when a request of review is properly submitted. As a Board of Review Member, Jeffrey assists in determining whether the suggested alternative provides equivalent or better protection within the context of the intent of the law.

Jeffrey said, “it’s an honor and a privilege to serve the Office of the State Fire Marshal. “Butch” Browning has done an exemplary job as the State Fire Marshal, and has made the Fire Prevention Board of Review board member responsibilities very easy”.

Jeffrey has been on the State Fire Prevention Board of Review since 2009, when he was initially appointed by Gov. Bobby Jindal. In 2015, he was elected chairman.
