Fire Permit Applications

NEW! Now offering accelerated processing of certain permit types.

The following permit types can be applied for using the Fast Track Permit Application: 

  • 13D Fire Sprinkler System
  • Fire Sprinkler Minor Modifications (addition and or relocation of 20 heads or less)
  • Fire Alarm Minor Modifications (addition and or relocation of 10 or less devices or a communicator swap)
  • LPG Tank (**LPG Tanks less than 125 gallons DO NOT require a permit)
  • Type I Hood Suppression System
  • Generator with Fuel Tank
  • Decommissioning of Residential Heating Oil Tanks

Once the required submittal documents have been received there will be a cursory review to ensure the documents are in place and meet code guidelines. Once that is completed a permit will be “conditionally approved based on the submitted documents”.
