Plan Review


Based upon the need for uniformity in application across the District’s diverse service delivery area, the District has determined that each electronic fire protection system plan submittal must be prepared as follows:

  1. All electronic fire protection system applications and plans, etc. must follow the applicable, existing OCFPD policy for the specific system type for each plan submittal application for content, as well as those content submittal requirements incorporated into the applicable, adopted referenced standar
  2. It is the obligation of the submitting contractor or designer to print full sized sheets of approved, electronic fire protection system plans, all manufacturers’ information sheets, and all calculation pages of any kind, and have a complete, properly sized physical plan set on site during any OCFPD inspection.

Note: Failure to have all of the documents noted above on site prior to OCFPD arrival for a permit inspection is considered sufficient justification to discontinue the inspection, charge the adopted re-inspection fee, and require the applicant to re-schedule their inspection appointment after the documents are on site as required above.
