Northwest Fire District



Protecting Our Community

The Prevention and Safety team are your resource when you are involved in new construction (residential or commercial), renovations or modifications. We provide guidance to property owners or authorized agents who intend to conduct an operation or business, install or modify systems and equipment that is regulated by the Fire Code, or to cause any such work to be done.

Upon obtaining the required permits (for operation, equipment, use or construction) from the Northwest Fire District, the Prevention and Safety staff conduct inspections and provide other resources to ensure conformance with the previously approved plans.

A permit cannot be issued until the specific plans and specifications have been reviewed and approved by the Northwest Fire District and the Town of Marana or Pima County depending on where your project or business is located.

There are two (2) types of permits that we issue:

Construction Permits

Construction permits are required for new construction or in remodeling existing structures. These permits address fire and life safety systems (fire protection and detection systems/equipment) for a broad range of activities that involve flammable or hazardous materials.

Operational Permits

Operational permits are required for conducting an operation, a business or event; or pertaining to processes and materials used on a regular basis.
