A fire protection permit is required for all installation of and alteration to fire protection systems such as:
- Fire alarms
- Other suppression systems and components.
Fire permit applications require shop drawings. Permits application submissions should be made by the owner, designer, and/or contractor and should be timed to meet deadlines. Make sure to schedule the necessary time for review and approval, to order and install equipment, and to arrange testing and final approval by the Inspection Services Division. If you have any questions, contact the Fire Protection Engineer, Plan Review Section Supervisor or the Building Official at 703-228-3800.
