The most effective way to fight a fire is to prevent it before it starts. For this reason the City of Celina has adopted Codes and Regulations aimed at making our buildings and homes safer from the ravages of fire. These requirements will result in fewer fires, less damaging fires and an improved insurance rating.
The City of Celina has adopted the 2006 International Fire Code, with NCTCOG amendments (option B) and other local and regional amendments. A copy of these amendments may be sent upon request. Please direct inquiries to the Celina Fire Marshal’s Office at (972) 382-2653.
An important provision of the fire code concerns installation of fire safety systems. Installation or alteration of any Fire Protection or Life Safety System shall only be performed by State Licensed Contractors. Plans for these systems must be submitted for review and must be approved by the Celina Fire Department prior to any Fire Protection or Life Safety System installation or alteration.
Three (3) sets of plans are required for the review process. The plans should be folded to fit in an 8.5 x 11 folder. However, rolled plans will be accepted if folding is impractical due to the number of sheets in the plans. Plans requiring review and approval may be mailed or hand-delivered to:
Celina Fire Administration
302 W. Walnut Street #200
Celina, TX 75009.
Plans available in either PDF or CAD formats may be sent via email to the Fire Marshal.
Please allow ten (10) business days for the plan review. The submitter will be contacted by phone when the plans have been approved or rejected. If the plans are rejected, a full explanation of the reasons will be provided along with suggestions for correcting the problems.
Please note that a set of approved plans must remain at the job site. For Inspections or Acceptance Tests, please contact the Fire Marshal’s Office at (972) 382-2653. Allow five (5) business days for completion of an inspection and the reporting of the results.
Fire sprinkler and fire alarm plans must include a plan review submittal sheet with the plans.
