Operational Permits

In an attempt to provide a clearer process for tracking special events and potentially hazardous activities, the Fire District has implemented an Operational Permit program. There will be no fee to obtain these permits.

The following types of activities require an Operational Permit:
  • Carnivals and Fairs
  • Cutting and Welding (hot work)
  • Exhibits and trade shows
  • Explosives
  • Use of a fire hydrant
  • Use and storage of flammable and combustible liquids (in excess of amounts necessary for routing maintenance)
  • Hazardous materials storage (in excess of amounts in table 105.6.20 of the IFC)
  • High piled storage exceeding 500 square feet
  • Fueled vehicles or equipment inside assembly areas
  • Open Burning
  • Open flames and torches in hazardous fire area
  • Open flames and candles in assembly areas, dining areas or drinking s
  • Places of Public Assembly
  • Pyrotechnic special effects, including fireworks
  • Temporary membrane structures, tents, and canopies
Through this program we hope to establish a partnership with the community that is focused on identifying solutions rather than creating unnecessary regulation. The Fire District is committed to providing for public safety while allowing for successful special activities. We recognize that last minute changes to these activities create a hardship for your business. Through this process, we hope to identify problems well ahead of the event so that corrections can be made in a timely manner.
Please feel free to call our office at 775-588-3591 if you have any questions about operational permits.
