What We Do

The Plans Division provides thorough and accurate plan reviews that ensure buildings are safe and accessible for everyone in order to reduce the loss of life and property to fire. The Division carries out the statutory duty of enforcement of the state fire codes and the state accessibility guidelines. The state fire codes consist of approximately 100 documents as published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Along with plan reviews, the Plans Division consults with architects, engineers, State Fire Marshal personnel, building contractors, other public agencies, and the general public to discuss, interpret, and answer questions about State Fire Marshal Regulations.
