PURPOSE The purpose of this industry bulletin is to notify applicable stakeholders of the upcoming requirement for all firms to prepare fire sprinkler plans in accordance with FFD Policy No. 401.011. BACKGROUND As noted in the California Fire Code (CFC), the fire code official has the authority to formulate policies they deem necessary based upon local conditions related to plan submittals for all systems, including fire sprinkler systems. The City of Fresno Fire Department has been in receipt of several firms’ permit applications, which includes fire sprinkler plans, and the submittals have been found to be deficient for basic requirements. To attempt to minimize some of the most common errors, the Department will begin requiring firms prepare fire sprinkler system submittals in accordance with FFD Policy No. 401.011. It is the Department’s intent to help stakeholders reduce the number of plans that have to be returned for errors or omissions, and help reduce plan review times for all plan submittals. INFORMATION Beginning October 1, 2016, all firms shall prepare fire sprinkler plans per FFD Policy No. 401.011. NOTE This notice is effective September 16, 2016. “To protect and put service above all else.”
