The Fire Protection Section of Building Inspection is primarily responsible for plan review of fire suppression systems, fire alarm systems and the storage of flammable and combustible liquids. In addition to plan review, the Fire Protection Section is available to provide code interpretation assistance to contractors, architects, consulting engineers, and other City departments.

The building code will usually require fire-rated construction of a building in addition to a fire suppression system. Please contact the Building Code Section if you have questions concerning building code requirements (IBC with Dallas Amendments, Chapters 7 and 9) for fire-rated construction assemblies or systems, fire sprinklers, fire alarms, smoke control, fire lanes and fire hydrants.

FOLLOW UP NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS AND THIRD-PARTY ENGINEERS PERFORMING REVIEWS FOR FIRE SPRINKLER AND/OR ALARMS

On December 29, 2021, we announced the termination of the Third-Party Engineers Plan Review Service.  We inserted this notice inside permit packets and posted this notice in our various office locations.  This notice is therefore just a reminder.

Effective February 1, 2022, we are terminating the Third-Party Fire Code Review program and we will not accept any new projects under this program.  We will allow for the processing of projects which are currently under contract with the Third-Party providers.

BEGINNING FEBRUARY 1, 2022, ALL SUBMISSIONS FOR FIRE PROTECTION REVIEWS WILL REVERT TO BEING MADE DIRECTLY TO BUILDING INSPECTIONS BASED ON OUR CURRENT METHOD OF SUBMISSIONS.

Thank you,
