Fire Code General Information

The Codes and Planning Section is overseen by the Fire Marshal and includes the Assistant Fire Marshal, one Senior Fire Inspector, one Fire Protection Engineer, six Fire Investigators and the Fire Safety Education and Outreach Special Team. This section is a primary service function of the Fire Services Division. The goal of Fire Codes and Planning is to reduce loss of life and injury and loss of property as a result of fire on a building. This goal is accomplished through fire code inspections, issuance of permits, plan review, life safety system testing, hazardous materials tracking and code enforcement, education programs,and special event planning, fire investigations, research, review, and recommending changes to and writing local amendments to the International Fire Code (IFC). This group works closely with Development Services and the Chief Building Official to make sure all new construction complies with the IFC.

  • The City of Longmont is currently utilizing the 2018 International Fire Code for regulating all fire hazards and building construction within the city limits.
  • This fire code is adopted as published with local amendments contained in Ordinance O-2019-04.
  • A true certified copy of the 2018 International Fire Code and local amendments are available for review at the city clerks office located at 350 Kimbark St., Longmont.

In order to provide better customer service, Longmont Fire Services has started using the automated inspection request line operated by the City of Longmont Building Inspection. You will need to schedule your inspections online.
