Plan Review

About the Plan Review Process


In the plan review process, a Fire Protection Analyst evaluates an occupancy's accessibility for the general public and emergency vehicles, as well as fire hydrant location and building construction (new and renovation). He or she then checks for compliance with the Life Safety Code, the Georgia Accessibility Code, the State and International Fire Code, and any other applicable city ordinances.

The Fire Marshal's office also reviews the plans and calculations for fire alarm, fire sprinkler, and alternative fire protection systems in both commercial and residential applications; fire protection systems must be permitted separately from the main building permit (see the City of Marietta Sprinkler Ordinance for details).

**Permit applications must be completed and filed in person**
EFFECTIVE MARCH 1, 2017:
Those applying for permits on behalf of a licensee of the State Fire Marshal’s Office or Secretary of the State’s Office must fill out an authorized permit agent form before Marietta Fire Department will review the application.
