The fire protection analyst conducts plan reviews and fire inspections for code compliance.
In the review process, analysts examine emergency vehicle access, fire hydrant location and access for the general public, building construction (new and renovation), plan review checks for compliance pertaining to the life safety code, the handicapped code, the state code, the international fire code and any other applicable city ordinances. Plans for fire sprinkler protection systems are reviewed for all buildings where required in both commercial and residential applications (see the city of Marietta sprinkler ordinance for details).
After an individual obtains a permit, he or she submits two sets of plans to the Fire Prevention Division located on the second floor of the Marietta Fire Department, 112 Haynes St. Plan review usually takes three to five business days. When there is deficiency with the plans, the fire protection analyst notes the deficiency and may return the plans to the appropriate person for corrections. Contact the Marietta fire prevention bureau at 770-794-5466.
