|Plans approved by the Fire Marshal give authorization for construction. Final approvals are subject to field inspection and verification. Any approval issued by the Fire Marshal does not release the contractor or property owner from responsibility of full compliance with all applicable codes and ordinances relating to the construction project. All installations must concur with approved plans. Any deviation from the approved plans requires a re-submittal to the Fire Marshal’s Office, PRIOR TO INSPECTION. Failure to submit revised plans prior to the inspection may result in a delay for inspection and sign-off.
Plans must be submitted through 'MyGovernmentOnline' link below.
All plan submittals must be accompanied by a copy of their respective Texas State Fire Marshal’s Office License (TSFMO) and Liability Insurance with the City of Kerrville listed as the certificate holder.
All plan submittals and calculations must be signed by a TSFMO Licensed Contractor, Qualified Fire Protection Engineer or a Qualified Professional Engineer.
Payment will not be accepted until a final approval of plans.
Plan Review Time and Hierarchy
It is the goal of the Fire Marshal’s Office to complete your plan review within the shortest possible time. We strive to complete your plan review within ten (10) business days from receipt of complete plan submittal package. Please be advised that revisions, changes or an incomplete submittal package may delay your final plan approval.
Plans are reviewed based upon the hierarchy of fire protection systems. That is, the fire sprinkler overhead will not be reviewed until the fire sprinkler underground has been permitted and the fire alarm will not be reviewed until the fire sprinkler system has been permitted.
This same rule is applied to civil and building construction plans. Civil plans are not reviewed until the Site Plan is approved and building construction plans are not reviewed until the civil plans have been approved.
