Fees for Plan Review are best paid by setting up an account on www.bill.com with all transactions being digital. Your invoice does contain a link to pay by credit card after setting up a login for that function. The Tiburon Fire District does accept checks in the appropriate amount, but any discrepancy will hinder the typical 14 business day turnaround. Any plans found deficient are sent back and the re-submittal is the date they fall into our review cue time. No re-submittals get expedited.
Automatic fire sprinkler plans, alarm system plans and engineered automatic extinguishing system plans shall be stamped and signed by the appropriate designer/engineer. Work may only commence after the plans have been approved and a copy of the approved plans are at the job site with the TFD stamped “Job Copy” in bold.
Failure to have Job Copy Approved plans onsite and the corresponding permit card will result in an automatic re-schedule and subsequent failure. Fines may occur pursuant to the Fee schedule linked above. All fines shall be paid before the next inspection shall commence.
All contractors should know that we always combine our permit with the building construction permit in accordance with Section 105.1.3 CFC. Special Event permits will be issued independently pursuant to CFC Section 105 and Ordinance #131.
Inspections are requested via email at email@example.com.
What kinds of plans does the Fire Marshal review?
The Fire Marshal and staff review most projects submitted to the Planning & Building Departments of the Town of Tiburon, City of belvedere and the County of Marin. The Building Department will route plans via email to the Tiburon Fire District Fire Prevention Bureau. Separate plan submittals (“deferred submittal”) are required for private water lines, water tanks, fuel tanks, automatic fire sprinklers, fire alarms, commercial kitchen hood fire protection systems, special fire suppression systems and vegetation management plans (VMPs). Deferred submittals should be emailed to Tiburon Fire District directly using the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Subject line should contain the address and a description of the submittal, i.e. “1679 Tiburon Boulevard VMP”
When does the Fire Marshal review my plans?
Projects will be reviewed when the plans and application for a building permit are submitted. Plans for private water lines, water tanks, fuel tanks, automatic fire sprinklers, fire alarms, commercial kitchen hood fire protection systems, special fire suppression systems and VMPs require separate plan submittals directly to the Tiburon Fire. It usually requires 14 BUSINESS days to complete the initial review. You will be contacted directly if the Fire Prevention Bureau has questions or corrections, and when the plans have been approved.
