Plan Review & Permits

The Southlake Fire Department is currently operating under the 2015 International Fire Code with local amendments.

2015 Fire Code Amendments

Sprinkler systems, fire alarms and other fire protection systems must be reviewed by our designated third party review firm. This engineering firm does charge the company submitting the plans and the charge is based on several variables.

Submit plans to either of the firms listed below:

No plan review is required for sprinkler system alterations involving 20 or less heads. Call the Fire Marshal's Office at 817-748-8233 for a visual of the system alterations before covering the ceiling.

Plans for pre-engineered suppression systems may be submitted directly to the Fire Marshal's Office for review. Plans may be dropped off at 600 State Street, Southlake, TX 76092.
