A permit is required for suppression systems for protection of areas such as: special storage, computer server rooms, spray booths, kitchen hoods, etc.
The installer is required to take out a fire suppression hood permit and submit a detailed diagram with supporting documentation. Fees are based on the cost of the system. Once the installation is complete, the installer is required to contact Fire Marshal Owen Fitzsimmons for an appointment to complete an acceptance test for the system before the facility can use it.
Please read the “How To” information first before beginning to help reduce any problems in completing the application. Contact the Bismarck Fire Department at (701) 355-1400 for more billing information, if you have any questions, or you are a new contractor that does not have a password.
