Fire Prevention Code Permits

If the task or operation includes a potentially hazardous situation as identified by the Fire Prevention Code, then 1 or more Fire Prevention Code Permits are likely required. Due to the hazardous nature of these facilities and operations, it is critical to the safety of Stafford County citizens, businesses, and first responders that these locations are inspected and found to be in compliance with the specific requirements set forth by the Fire Prevention Code. (See the FAQ "Where can I view a copy of the Fire Prevention Code?") The following guidelines have been established to help identify when Fire Prevention Code Permits are required: Fire Prevention Code Permit Guidelines (PDF).
