Fire Protection Specialist

The Fire Plans Review Section is currently staffed with one Fire Protection Specialist.  The Fire Protection Specialist reviews plans submitted for planning, civil improvement, building, and fire protection systems in accordance with local and state requirements. This section is also responsible for interpreting and applying the Fire Code as necessary, and assists in the modifications of the Fire Code as adopted by the City. The Fire Protection Specialist is only available by appointment for specific types of over-the-counter plan reviews (see information sheet below) and for consultation regarding fire protection requirements for new and existing buildings and businesses.

Note: No show or late arrivals for scheduled over-the-counter reviews will be subject to a 1-3 day turn around time.

All plans submitted to the Permit Application Center for review on February 4, 2019 or after will be reviewed to compliance with the 2018 Editions of the International Codes and the adopted amendments of the City of North Las Vegas.
