Fire Sprinkler/Standpipe Permits

What is it?

You need a Fire Sprinkler/Standpipe Permit when you are installing a new or making modification to an existing fire sprinkler system or standpipe system.

How Much Does it Cost?

Fees are based on the number heads, water supplies, fire pumps or standpipe systems added/relocated as outlined in Table D of the Redmond Fire Department fees.  Half the permit fees are due at time of permit application. The balance is due upon permit issuance.

How Long Does It Take?

You can apply at the Development Services Center.  Intake appointments are required when you are submitting any permit that requires plan review or issuance of three (3) or more permits over-the-counter.  Please visit our online booking  to schedule your appointment.  Your application and plans will be reviewed for completeness by our Fire Prevention counter staff to determine if your project qualifies for an expedited review.  If so, your project will be reviewed and the permit issued within 3-5 business days.  Otherwise full plan review generally takes 2-4 weeks.
