For new or renovated structures -- except one- and two-family dwellings -- compliance with the Fire Code is required before issuance of a use and occupancy permit. These inspections are scheduled automatically as part of the permit process.
The following information is designed to make your inspection go smoothly. Please make the appropriate contractors aware of this information. Following the tips in this section should help you avoid many of the common obstacles to getting an inspection completed in a timely manner.
Schedule a request for an inspection by calling the Fire Marshal's Office, (405) 297-3584. Please make sure you are ready for inspection when you call as our goal is to complete inspections within two business days. Inspection requests should be made by the general contractor.
What You Need for Your Fire Inspection
Approved plans, especially those pertaining to fire alarm and sprinkler inspections. Approved plans must be kept on site at all times for use by inspectors. Approved plans will have a stamp and signature from the Plan Review office. Copies of plans are not acceptable. Shop drawings and other plans without stamps and signature are not acceptable.
Comment letters/Review Sheets from the City's Plan Review office are part of your approved plans and must be kept on site at all times for use by inspectors. Make sure you read them thoroughly. These letters often contain important information not found on the plans themselves.
Plan revisions: Construction must match the approved plans. If changes are made to construction or systems, plans must be revised through the City’s Development Center. Revised approved plans, with stamp and signature, must be on site for inspections. Deviations without revised approved plans require approval of the Fire Marshal.
