Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Safety Division is open for permit payments from 8-10 a.m. Monday through Friday (except holidays).
Payment Option Instructions:
Applicants may remit payment by credit card by calling (970) 962-2497 between 8 and 10 am Monday through Friday and pay the permit fees by phone.
Applicants may remit payment in person by check or credit card by coming to the Community Safety Division office between 8 and 10 a.m. Monday through Friday.
Applicants may mail a check to: Loveland Fire Rescue Authority, Attn: Community Safety Division, 410 E. 5th St., Loveland, CO 80537
Once payment is received, LFRA will email the permit inspection card and the LFRA-stamped permit drawings to the applicant. The applicant is responsible for printing one copy each of the permit conditions and inspection card, and having both on site. As usual, the LFRA-stamped drawings can be on site either digitally (using a tablet or other electronic device) or in printed form.
The International Fire Code authorizes the fire code official to issue Operational Permits to oversee the safety of operations that pose an increased safety risk (Section 105.6 of the 2018 IFC). Some examples include sale and use of fireworks and other explosives, tents and canopies, fuel dispensing and storage, distillation processes, flammable finish application (spray booths), storage and dispensing of medical or compressed gases, crygenic use and high-piles combustible storage. These permits are typically renewed annually after an inspection conducted by LFRA; fireworks permits, however, must be newly applied for, approved and inspected each year.
If your business includes any of these operations but you do not yet have an Operational Permit, please contact the Community Safety Division of LFRA at (970) 962-2537.
