The contractor is responsible for ensuring that the system(s) being installed or modified is in compliance with all locally adopted codes, including, but not limited to the 2015 International Fire Code, referenced NFPA Standards and local amendments.

Plans approved by the Keller Fire Marshal's Office give authorization for construction. Final approvals are subject to field verification. Any approval issued by the Fire Marshal's Office does not release the contractor or property owner from the responsibility of full compliance with all applicable codes and ordinances relating to the construction project. Final approvals are subject to field inspection and verification.

All installations must reflect the approved plans. Any deviation from the approved plans requires a re-submittal to the Fire Marshal's Office prior to inspection. All plan review and inspection process steps must be followed. Deviation from the requirements will result in delays.

PLAN REVIEW TIME & HIERARCHY

It is the goal of the Fire Marshal's Office to complete your plan review in a timely manner. We strive to complete your plan review within 10 business days from receipt of a complete plan submittal package. Please be advised that revisions, changes or an incomplete submittal package will delay your final approval.

Plans are reviewed based upon the hierarchy of the fire protection systems. That is, the fire sprinkler overhead will not be reviewed until the fire sprinkler underground has been permitted, and the fire alarm plans will not be reviewed until the fire sprinkler system has been permitted and so forth.
