PURPOSE The purpose of this industry bulletin is to notify applicable stakeholders of the approved revisions to Fresno Fire Department (FFD or Department) Policy No. 401.011, Fire Sprinkler System Plan Specifications. This policy outlines minimum plan requirements for all firms preparing fire sprinkler plans for review by the Department. 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. To attempt to minimize some of the most common errors found on plans, the Department began requiring firms prepare fire sprinkler system submittals in accordance with Department Policy No. 401.011 in October of 2016. It is the Department’s intent to continue to help stakeholders reduce the number of plans that have to be returned for errors or omissions, and to help reduce plan review times for all plan submittals. INFORMATION Beginning October 1, 2017, all fire sprinkler plans submitted to the Department shall be in accordance with the revised policy. Policy No. 401.011 (and all other Department policies) can be found on the City’s website at the following address: https://www.fresno.gov/fire/fire-prevention-investigation/development-policies/ NOTE This notice is effective September 1, 2017. “To protect and put service above all else.”
