Plan Review Application and Fee Schedule

New Construction and Fire Protection Systems Information

Our Fire Prevention and Life Safety office handles plan reviews and permitting for fire alarm and fire sprinkler systems. In April of 2013, the Town of Windsor, Town of Severance and Weld County adopted the 2012 International Fire Code.  Please reference the 2012 IFC Amendment and Solar Panel Installation Amendment, as well as other applicable codes and standards when submitting plans for review.

Before beginning any new construction or re-model construction, contractors should determine if fire alarms and/or fire sprinkler systems and permits are required for your project.

All contractors installing or repairing fire alarm and/or suppression systems within our fire district are required to hold a current State of Colorado Contractor’s License or equivalent certification (i.e NICET or CSA). Proof of this is required when plans are submitted.

Fire Alarm Permit submittals shall include the following:

  • Valid contractor’s license or equivalent certification
  • Completed permit application with correct address and valuation
  • Three Sets of Plans (Min 1/8” Scale) (A maximum of three sets will be stamped) Digital Plans are acceptable as well.
  • PE or NICET Level III Stamp on all plans
  • Minimum of one set of material cut sheets
  • Voltage drop calculations
  • Battery calculations
  • Symbol list
  • Riser diagram

The above list is not intended to be all inclusive of all requirements for a fire alarm submittal, but rather a guide to indicate the minimum requirements.

  • Valid contractor’s license or equivalent certification
  • Completed permit application with correct address and valuation
  • Three sets of plans (Min 1/8” Scale) (A maximum of three sets will be stamped) Digital Plans are acceptable as well.
  • PE or NICET Level III Stamp on all plans

General Construction and Fire-Protection System Inspections
Inspections performed by Windsor Severance Fire Rescue are required for building permits (new structures and tenant finishes) issued by the Town of Windsor, Town of Severance, Larimer County and Weld County, and for all fire-protection system permits issued by WSFR for structures in Windsor, Severance, Larimer County and Weld County.

WSFR conducts final inspections for building permits in order for the owner or occupant to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy or Letter of Completion, prior to occupying the building. For fire-protection systems, WSFR performs rough inspections and final inspections, also for the owner or occupant to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy or Letter of Completion.

Final inspections consisting of building permit (general construction) and fire-protection systems must be scheduled for the same time and all applicable contractors must be present for testing and inspecting. For these multi-inspection projects, the general contractor or owner must schedule the final fire inspection with WSFR and coordinate attendance of the fire-protection contractors.

For fire-protection system inspections only, the fire contractor schedules the inspection with WSFR. Records of completion must be filled out and given to the inspector at the conclusion of the final inspection.

PRIOR TO SCHEDULING ANY INSPECTIONS, CONTRACTORS SHOULD READ ALL FIRE COMMENTS THAT CAME WITH THE PERMIT, TO ENSURE ALL REQUIREMENTS HAVE BEEN MET BEFORE INSPECTIONS.

The project address and permit number(s) must be provided when requesting inspections.

To schedule a fire inspection with WSFR, call (970) 686.2626 at least 48 hours prior to when you want the inspection.
