How to Apply
You can apply for Residential New Fire Sprinkler systems online using our Plan Review Online (PRO) request form. If the permit type you need is not available through PRO, it will need to be applied for in person. Quick Start Fire Alarm and Fire Sprinkler Permits can be applied for using the Redmond ePermitting Service (REPS).
In person permit applications are handled on a first-come-first-served basis. Staff is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., except for City recognized holidays. To schedule an in person intake appointment you can use our online booking calendar OR you can speak with one of our Permit Technicians by email to help you set up an appointment.
- If you are submitting three or more permits or any permit that requires plan review an appointment is highly recommended.
- Prior to the appointment, make sure to have all applicable forms filled out and saved to a USB drive. We do not accept any paper applications or plans. Please make sure the USB drive only contains permit information. Each USB drive is scanned for viruses before being accepted.
- Be ready to pay for the plan review portion of the permit. We do not take payments over the phone and only accept Visa, MasterCard, Check, & Cash. For applicable fees visit the Development Services Fees page.
Your application and plans will be reviewed for completeness by our Fire Prevention counter staff to determine if your project qualifies for an expedited review. If so, your project will be reviewed and the permit issued within 3-5 business days. Otherwise full plan review generally takes 2-4 weeks.
