About Permits & Applications

The Fire Plan Review and Inspection Section of the Fire Marshal Division is responsible for conducting plan review and inspections of permit required work. Plans and applications will be reviewed during the intake process and assigned to one of five levels based on the type and size of the project.  Each level includes a projected review time for initial and subsequent submittals.  Our goal is to review the plans and provide comments or approvals within the projected timeframe.  Review times will be extended based on volume of plans and workload of the Division.  Projected review times may be reviewed in our Fire Plan Review & Permitting information bulletin. 


A list of fire permit applications is outlined below. Be sure to read, review, and understand the required information for each application. Incomplete applications cannot be processed and will delay the plan review. We are continually working to review, update, and improve this material so be sure to check back often to obtain the most current edition of the needed form.
