Schedule DPS Fire Protection/Fire Alarm System Inspection
Beginning February 1, 2012, DPS will perform Fire Alarm Permit and Fire Protection System Permit inspections. The Department of Fire and Rescue Services will no longer perform inspections for these permits issued by DPS.

An inspection may be scheduled online by using the prompts on Permitting Services home page (see link). You must have your building permit(s) available to schedule an inspection. Enter the type of permit and permit number. On the "Schedule Inspection" tab enter the type and date of inspection and the contact ID number. If it is before 12 noon, select the date for the following day. If it is after 12 noon, then select the date for two days hence. The system will list the date of inspection, inspector name and telephone number and provide a confirmation number. Please provide a contact name and phone number for inspections for Fire Protection and Fire Alarm. A fire inspection can also be scheduled using the DPS Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system, by calling 240.777.6210. You will be prompted to enter your permit number, type of permit and contact ID number.
