With the escalating impact of COVID-19, the Clayton Fire Department is committed to reducing the spread of the virus. Physical onsite inspections have been suspended until social distancing requirements are relaxed. To maintain the critical permitted inspection process, we are offering Remote Video Inspections (RVI) as an alternative to physical inspection in some applications. The permit holder must contact our office to set up an inspection and be able to support a live FaceTime (preferred) or like video applications (Skype or Zoom) session at the project site. The person who performed the work must be on site with the approved plans and available to answer questions. The camera must be operated by the permit holder or designee and be prepared to verify dimensions at the direction of the inspector.
The fire department has provided you with two ways to submit your application and pick up your permit. Option #1 is the preferred method and should yield a faster turnaround time over option #2.
OPTION 1 – ONLINE SUBMISSION
FIRE SAFETY CONSTRUCTION online applications are available on our website . Once your application is complete, email your application and drawings to email@example.com. Scanned or electronic drawings smaller than 8 MB can be attached to the email for submittal. For files larger than 8 MB, a link and permission to a file share location is required. A new application has been created to assist you in your application process.
