The plan review process is an important aspect of Fire Prevention. Plans are required for the installation or modification of any fire protection system in any new or existing buildings. Plan Examiners review plans to insure that the Fire Code and applicable referenced standards are being followed, and to prevent unnecessary hazards.
Fire Prevention reviews and performs all inspections for the following systems:
Fire alarm systems
Underground fire protection water systems
Hood extinguishing systems
Fire sprinkler and standpipe systems
Above ground storage tanks
High piled combustible storage
Fire Department apparatus
Placement of new fire hydrants
Fire Prevention works closely with the Planning Department, Building and Safety and local water companies to assure that the following criteria are met for new development:
Adequate water supplies are provided and distributed throughout new developments
Roads are constructed to enable fire apparatus access to areas within the development
Long-range planning is in place so that growth can occur while still considering Fire Department priorities and concerns
