Fire Prevention Permits Policy
Permits are required and enforceable through the International Fire Code 2006 edition.
Permit fees shall be paid prior to issuance of the permit.
Issued permits shall be kept on the premises designated therein at all times and shall be readily available for inspection by the fire code official.
Issued permits are not transferable and any change in occupancy, operation, tenancy or ownership shall require that a new permit be issued.
Issued permits shall not be construed as authority to violate, cancel or set aside any of the provisions of this code or other applicable regulations or laws of the jurisdiction.
A CONSTRUCTION permit allows the applicant permission to install equipment utilized in connection with such activities; or to install or modify any fire protection system or equipment or any other construction, equipment installation or modification in accordance with the provisions of this code. The permit shall automatically become invalid if work does not commence within 180 days after its issuance. (The permit is issued to the installing/installer company, not the property owner.) Fee is 1½% of job cost or $100.00 minimum for all construction permits.
An OPERATIONAL permit allows the applicant permission to maintain, store, or handle materials; or to conduct processes, which produce conditions hazardous to life or property. The permit shall remain in effect until reissued, renewed or revoked or for such a period of time as specified on the permit. (Usually 12 months). Fee for an operational permit is $100.00
