For All Projects Located in the Couty of Fresno, the process is as follows:
- Applicant will print (2) copies of the proposed plans, all supporting documents (Calculations, spec sheets, etc.), and a plan review application and deliver or mail to North Central Fire Protection District Headquarters. Note: Plan review applications can be found HERE . A printed copy can be submitted in person or postal service at North Central Fire Headquaters located at 15850 W. Kearney Blvd, Kerman Ca, 93630.
- North Central Fire will accept the plans and prepare them for review by a third party plan reviewer. Plans will be picked up every Thursday at noon. The Districts strives to meet a 21-day turnaround time from the time plans are dropped off to when the applicant is notified plans are ready for pickup.
- NOTE: If plans are dropped off later than 3:30pm on Wednesday afternoon, the plans wont be processed and picked up until the next week.
- During the review process comments or notes on the plans will be directly discussed between the third-party plan reviewer and the applicant.
- Once approved the third-party reviewer will deliver plans to the fire prevention division.
- The prevention division will then create an invoice for the review, a job card, fire permit and notify the applicant that plans are ready for pickup.
- Payment can only be made by CASH, CHECK, OR MONEY ORDER at the fire prevention counter located at North Central Fire Protection District headquarters.
- Once payment is received plans, permit, and job card will be transferred to the applicant. Job cards MUST remain on site with plans that are wet stamped and a PDF copy of the wet stamped plans must be received by Fire.Prevention@NorthCentralFire.org to receive your final inspection.
