Sprinkler System Requirements New and Existing Systems
All new installations and any modifications to any existing fire sprinkler system require a permit. The permit fee is $100.00 plus a plan review fee. To view the new plan review fees, please see Master Fee Schedule (PDF).
Most existing systems that only require work on 10 or less heads, will only require a scope of work, a copy of a license, and permit fee for the application phase. This scoping letter should be transmitted to email.
Plan Reviews and Permits
Please submit your Sprinkler, Fire Pump and Fire Alarm plans to our third-party plan review company - Traditions Fire Consulting. Contact information:
Traditions Fire Consulting, 972-979-0631 or by e-mail. Submit application and electronic plans directly to our provider. Once the plans are reviewed, a non-permitted draft set will be transmitted to the applicant. The Fire Marshal approved set and a permit will electronically follow with receipt of fees. This invoice procedure usually takes 1-3 days from the time Traditions transmits the draft submittal.
Note: All new installations of fire suppression systems that utilize the city's potable water supply shall have an approved reduced pressure detector assembly (RPDA) installed.
