Nebraska State Fire Marshall

Nebraska Fire Marshalls employ three deputies, one in each district, whose responsibility is to inspect all grain elevators, feed mills; propane tanks and bottle fill sites, and anhydrous ammonia tanks (NH3).

Title 161 regulates inspections and outlines the annual registration fee assessed on grain elevators and feed mills. The fees are based on capacity for grain elevators and type of milling done at feed mills and are due in this office by January 1. A permit is issued to those facilities that pay their fees. The permit expires December 31 of each year.
