The Fire Prevention Division manages the City and County of Denver’s program of Fire Safety Permits.
A Fire Safety Permit is an official document, issued in the name of the Fire Official, that authorizes the performance of a certain activity (use, handling, storage, manufacturing, occupancy or control of specific hazardous operations and conditions). The permit is issued only if the condition meets code requirements. The permit process includes cross-checking with Development Services, Public Health and other agencies to ensure that those agencies’ requirements are also being observed.
There is a charge for permits; see Permit Fee Table. In almost every case, there is an on-site inspection at no extra charge.
