Fire Permits and Inspections

The Fire Prevention Division issues permits, conducts hazard inspections and provides services to builders and developers, including plan review, environmental site assessments, permits and life safety systems inspections.

The Prevention Division is led by Assistant Fire Chief and Fire Marshal David Cannady, who is responsible for developing, maintaining and enforcing the fire code.

NOTICE: Beginning April 3, 2017, Fire Permits will be processed through EnerGov.  Click here to learn more about the impact and benefits of this new system.
