Fire Plans Review & Approval Process

  • You must submit your plans with your application to the Boulder City Fire Department.  Only complete sets of plans will be accepted.
  • Plans are forwarded to our contracted fire reviewer.  A review of your plans can take up to 1 to 2 weeks depending on the contracted examiner's schedule.
  • Swap-outs will not be accepted once the plans have been given to the contracted fire reviewer. The Fire Department will not be responsible for replacing individual plan / specification pages. Once the plans have been given to the reviewer, the plans review must be completed (revisions to a plan cannot be accepted while a current plan is undergoing review).
  • After the plans are approved by our contracted fire reviewer and the Fire Chief, the customer will be notified and must pick up their plans, permit and pay any outstanding fees before inspections can be scheduled.
  • If the plans are not approved, the customer will be notified and anew set of revised plans will need to be submitted. A Asbuilt, Revision, Re-Inspection Plans Review application and depending on the reviewer's notations, an additional fee will be imposed.  See Fire Plans Corrections & Revisions and Secondary Fee Schedule for Asbuilts, Re-Inspection, Etc.
