- A Tenant improvement.
- Renovation or alteration to a portion or all of an existing building.
- Proposed fire alarm system upgrade.
- a) Initiate the process by acquiring the Fire Alarm Reduction or Removal Request forms from West Metro Fire:
b) The Step 1: Building Worksheet form provides basic information necessary to determine the complexity of the building and whether approval of the request is possible or if additional information is required. Thoroughly complete this form.
c) Email a PDF copy of the Step 1 form to:
d) Once submitted, a representative of the West Metro Fire Life Safety Division will contact you to schedule a meeting.
Based on all fire code criteria and the building worksheet it is determined that all or a portion of the system may be removed and the building will remain in full compliance. The West Metro Fire plan reviewer will sign the Step 1 form approving the partial or total removal of the Fire Alarm System. This form can then be provided to a fire alarm contractor who will apply for the permit to conduct the work that’s been approved.
b) Based on all fire code criteria and the building worksheet it is determined that additional information is necessary to conclude with certainty that removal of any portion or all of the fire alarm system will not adversely affect either the compliance of the building or the function of other life safety systems in the building.
