Inspection Requests & Procedures

Call our office at 972-547-2850 to schedule.

Inspection Requests

Contact our office at least 24 hours in advance of the requested inspection date and time. The following information must be provided when calling for an inspection:

  • Permit number
  • Name and address of project
  • Fire protection contractor's company name
  • Contact name and phone number
  • Type of inspection requested

A representative of the company requesting the inspection must be present at the time of inspection. Only a representative of the company to which the permit is issued is permitted to schedule an inspection.

Fire Marshal's Office-approved, stamped and signed plans must be kept on the job site and presented to the inspector upon request. Contractor shop drawings are not considered approved plans. If the plans were approved and permitted electronically through the Electronic Plan Review Process, it is the contractor's responsibility to pick up the permit in our office, prior to the scheduled inspection.

Pre-Test Requirements

All fire alarm and fire sprinkler systems shall be pre-tested prior to inspection by the Fire Marshal's Office.  Failure to pre-test may be considered an automatic failed inspection.

On-Site Permit Requirements

Keep plans and permit on the job site at all times during the construction process.

  • One set of approved plans, permit and review letter shall be maintained onsite at all times
  • Fire protection system permit shall be posted near the entrance to the building or kept in a permit jacket in the construction trailer at all times until the Certificate of Occupancy is issued
  • All previous inspection forms shall be maintained onsite and available upon request by the inspector

The fire marshal and/or field inspector may request additional inspections as necessary.

Final Inspection

This inspection shall be conducted when all sheetrock and millwork is completed. The objective of this inspection is to verify device coverage is still adequate after the initial rough inspection. This will enable the Fire Marshal's Office and the fire protection contractor the ability to make necessary changes prior to the request for a Certificate of Occupancy.

Governing Documents

All tests and installation must comply with, but not limited to, the 2015 International Fire Code and applicable NFPA Standards.
