When do I need a permit?
The Fire Marshal's Office issues operational permits and construction permits.

An operational permit allows the business to conduct a specific operation (e.g. high piled storage, hazardous materials).

A construction permit allows the applicant to install or modify a specific fire protection system, storage tank or other system outlined in the fire code. A comprehensive list of permits issued can be obtained by contacting our office.
