To provide a clear process for tracking special events and potentially hazardous activities, the Fire District has an Operational Permit program. There is no fee to apply for Operational Permits, but there may be fees associated with event requirements (i.e. ambulance/fire engine standby).
Permit requests should be submitted at least fifteen business days prior to the activity requiring the permit.
