North County Fire and Medical District

Code Enforcement / Plans Review

The Arizona Fire & Medical Authority's Fire Inspection Program provides technical support, information, and inspections to assure compliance with adopted fire codes for the North County Fire & Medical District and the Sun Lakes Fire District. Issues relating to fire codes are addressed at many levels of planning and development. A code enforcement and construction plan review is available for fire code consultations, formal construction plan review and on-site building evaluations. All projects within the Authority's boundaries are required to be formally reviewed for fire code compliance. This includes all new construction, tenant improvements, hazardous operations, installation or modification of fire protection systems and special events.

The International Code Council is a member-focused association dedicated to helping the building safety community and construction industry to provide safe, sustainable and affordable construction through the development of codes and standards used in the design, build and compliance process. Most U.S. communities and many global markets choose the International Codes. The International Codes, or I-Codes, published by ICC, provide minimum safeguards for people at home, at school and in the workplace. I-Codes are a complete set of comprehensive, coordinated building safety and fire prevention codes. The latest edition of the International Fire Code (IFC) has been researched, amended and adopted by the Fire & Medical Authority or partner agencies Governing Boards (see links on the right side of this page).

In support of the fire codes, the National Fire Protection Association publishes a set of referenced fire code standards. NFPA develops, publishes, and disseminates more than 300 consensus codes and standards intended to minimize the possibility and effects of fire and other risks. Virtually every building, process, service, design, and installation in society today is affected by NFPA documents. Many of these standards are adopted as referenced within the IFC.

A fee schedule has been adopted by the Governing Boards for services relating to risk management related activities. Permits are required for all hazardous operations, construction activities, and special events.
