"There Is No Honor Fighting A Fire That Could Have Been Prevented"

Inspections

Permit Fees

Boles Fire Protection District charges minimal fees to cover the cost of plans review and inspections to help assure all commerical buildings and activities meet appropriate Fire Prevention Codes. A Permit Application needs to be completed first for all Categories except #3 Bonfires, #5 Burn Permits and #16 Refunds.  The fee must be paid before a Fire Prevention Permit can be issued. A complete list of fees can be found in Section F-113.3 Inspection and Permit Fees.

For your convenience, Permit Fees can be paid by PayPal using the secure form below. Please be aware that paying online does not allow you to begin your project. The project can start once fees collected are approved, you receive a hard copy permit and a returned stamped set of approved drawings by the Fire Inspector plus any immediate required inspections are completed.
