Please review the required submission time frames listed below:

  • Clear/Compliant: Systems containing NO deficiencies will be submitted within a 30-day time frame of when the inspection took place.
  • Deficient: Systems containing any deficiencies will be submitted within a 7-10 day time frame of when the inspection took place.
  • Critical: Upon ANY red tag/CRITICAL impairment, please notify the Fire Marshal’s Office immediately. Once we’re notified, please upload the information through IROL by the end of the next business day.

Helpful Tips:

  • Our AHJ ID is GAA11463 - Marietta Fire Marshal's Office. This is necessary when a property owner (rep) creates a location profile or when service providers submit reports through IROL.
  • IROL’s system provides industry-based reports OR service providers can upload/submit their own test report.
  • Users are able to track and update deficiencies and communicate with our department and/or a service provider, and the business/property owner, directly through IROL at no additional costs.
  • There are no user fees or additional fees associated with IROL.
  • Service providers are able to create and add unlimited number of users.
  • New account registrations may take up to two days to process.
  • Property Owners/Managers - We encourage you to register, too! This will give you access to see all the submitted reports on your Fire and Life Safety systems in the same place and at the same time we do. You also have the ability to communicate directly with your various service providers, the fire department, and add additional users and contacts to your location(s) - all at no additional cost.
  • IROL does provide new user training.
  • All questions related to IROL should be addressed to IROL. Please contact IROL directly at or 331-454-7800.
