PURPOSE The purpose of this industry bulletin is to notify applicable stakeholders regarding fire sprinkler and fire alarm related plan review times during the period noted above. INFORMATION Fire sprinkler and fire alarm related plan review times will be significantly impacted as staffing levels will be reduced during this time period. Stakeholders should plan well in advance to ensure necessary plans have been prepared and submitted in the intervening period, as fire sprinkler and fire alarm related plan review wait times are anticipated to be extended. Should the current volume of plan submittals remain unchanged, plan review wait times may increase from the normal 7 to 12 business days to up to 30 business days. As plan review turnaround times increase, stakeholders are advised to plan their projects and submittals accordingly. It is the Department’s intent to reduce the plan review times back to 7 to 12 business days as quickly as possible during the month of August. NOTE This notice is effective June 1st, 2016 and will expire on August 1st, 2016. “To protect and put service above all else.”
