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.
*We are a Paperless Permit Office*
Contractor’s Information The City has adopted the 2018 International Fire Code with the North Central Texas Council of Governments amendments option (b). These amendments are consistent with most cities in the D/FW metroplex. Click here for more information. A copy of these amendments may be sent upon request. Please direct inquiries to the Celina Fire Prevention Division.
2021 IFC has been adopted and will be effective as of November 1st, 2022.
An important provision of the fire code concerns the 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.
Submittal Process: Email your Fire Permit Application along with drawings and specifications to firstname.lastname@example.org for processing. All submittals should be in a single pdf. Larger files can be emailed as a link (drop box, google docs etc.). This will be sent to a third party for review and upon approval sent to our Fire Marshal's office for review. If you have any questions, please contact Commercial Permits or call 972-382-2111.
Please note that a set of approved plans must remain at the job site. For Inspections or Acceptance Tests, please contact the Fire Prevention Division at (972) 382-2653. Allow five (10) 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. The Celina Fire Prevention Division has prepared comprehensive documents with information on the permitting and inspection processes. Please review these documents by clicking on the links below.
