new construction

The Fire Prevention Division, Development Services unit provides inspection and plan review of all new, repaired, or replaced fire protection systems requiring a building permit and projects dealing with fire department access and water supply.

The Fire Plan Review Counter is located on the 3rd Floor at 300 Richards Blvd in Sacramento and is open to the public 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, Monday thru Friday (excluding City holidays). Please note, over-the-counter plan reviews are reviews of simple projects requiring less than an hour.

Inspections

The Sacramento Fire Department inspects buildings for compliance with code requirements and scope of work in accordance with building permits. All construction work that requires a building permit must be inspected and remain accessible and exposed for inspection until approved by the inspector. The permit must be on site at all times throughout the construction/modification phase. A set of approved and signed plans (stamped "APPROVED") are required to be on site for each inspection.

It is the property owner's responsibility to make sure that all required inspections are made on a project, including both in-progress inspections and the final inspection. The contractor, however, may schedule the inspections and be the one on-site contact for each one.
