Commercial Permits & Inspections


General Information The following information is being provided to help you navigate through the Fire District Permit and Inspection process. Please be aware that the Fire District Permit and Inspection Process is completely independent of any city / county permitting process that may be required for your project. You must have Fire District AND city / county approval before you begin construction. Please submit your plans to the Fire District at the same time you submit them to the city / county in order to allow concurrent plan reviews. This will save you time and allow you to begin construction sooner. If you are not familiar with our Permit and Inspection requirements, we encourage you to review the Permit FAQ and Inspection FAQ prior to applying for a permit. Permits Information to Submit for a Permit: Application Form: The Fire Permit Application shall be filled out COMPLETELY and ACCURATELY. Application Form: Commercial Permit Application.pdf Submit two (2) sets of construction documents, as listed below, for review . Once the permit is approved one set will be returned to the permittee. This approved set will need to stay on the job site for use by our Inspectors until the final inspection and occupancy is approved. Unless stated otherwise all construction plans, spec books and hydraulic calculations must be properly signed and sealed by the appropriate design professional.
