FOLLOW UP NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS AND THIRD-PARTY ENGINEERS PERFORMING REVIEWS FOR FIRE SPRINKLER AND/OR ALARMS
On December 29, 2021, we announced the termination of the Third-Party Engineers Plan Review Service. We inserted this notice inside permit packets and posted this notice in our various office locations. This notice is therefore just a reminder.
Effective February 1, 2022, we are terminating the Third-Party Fire Code Review program and we will not accept any new projects under this program. We will allow for the processing of projects which are currently under contract with the Third-Party providers.
BEGINNING FEBRUARY 1, 2022, ALL SUBMISSIONS FOR FIRE PROTECTION REVIEWS WILL REVERT TO BEING MADE DIRECTLY TO BUILDING INSPECTIONS BASED ON OUR CURRENT METHOD OF SUBMISSIONS.
