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.
Applicants may remit payment by credit card by calling (970) 962-2497 between 8 am and 4 pm 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 7:30 am and 4 pm, Monday through Friday.
Applicants may mail a check to: Loveland Fire Rescue Authority, Attn: Community Safety Division, 410 E. 5th St., Loveland, CO 80537
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.
