Operational Permits

As of June 15, 2020, the LFRA Community Safety Division office is open to the public Monday through Thursday from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm. The building is closed Fridays due to COVID-19-related budget cuts, but CSD employees are working Fridays and are available to meet with customers. Schedule Friday appointments at least 24 hours in advance by calling (970) 962-2497.

LFRA is continuing to review and issue permits and conduct inspections for fire-protection systems and new building construction, using a process that is similar to our normal procedure.  For information on how to apply for construction permits, please click here.

 

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.

Hazardous Materials Permit

Hazardous Materials Permits are issued by Loveland Fire Rescue Authority in order to ensure materials that pose a health or physical hazard are stored and used properly, in order to prevent undue risk to the public. These permits are renewed annually after an on-site inspection conducted by LFRA. The permit cost is $100 for a 12-month period.

Some examples of hazmat permits include fuel dispensing and storage, distillation processes, flammable finish application (spray booths), storage and dispensing of medical or compressed gases and cryogenic use.

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.
