The Fire Department must review permit plans to ensure they comply with local requirements and codes.
Permits - When are they required?
Generally, you need to obtain a permit from the Fire Department whenever you construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, remove, improve, convert, or demolish a building or other structure. A building can be anything from a building to a shed. Additionally, code violations are generally required to obtain a permit to correct violations including minor property maintenance violations. A permit may include fire sprinklers, decking installation and replacement, window replacement, fire alarm installation, and building construction.
Applying for a permit
You may apply for a building permit when the plans for your proposed project are complete. The Fire Department does not take deferred fire sprinkler and fire alarm submittals. They must be submitted as a complete package with applications submitted respectively to the type of submittal.
All applications are available on the Tyler Technology Fire Prevention website. The fire department does not accept hard copy applications or plans.
