Proposed Increases to Fire Prevention and Hazardous Materials Fees
Proposed increases to the Fire Prevention and Hazardous Materials permit and inspection fees are included in the City’s Fiscal Year 2017-2018 Fee Schedule which is slated for final approval by City Council during their regular meeting on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 at 7pm.
The purpose of the proposed fee increases is to better align fees with the cost of delivering inspection and permitting services and to improve fire prevention and hazardous materials services. The types of businesses that will be affected is varied and includes among others, restaurants, repair garages, and research and development facilities.  


What We Do

The Fire Prevention and Fire Protection Engineering Unit is staffed with two full-time Fire Inspectors, three full-time Fire Protection Engineers, two full-time Hazmat Inspectors, and two casual Office Staff, all under the supervision of the Fire Marshal.

Fire Prevention is tasked with fire and life-safety inspections of a variety of occupancies within Sunnyvale. These occupancies include facilities that possess fire operations permits such as public assemblies, high piled storage, repair garages, and many more. Fire Prevention staff also inspect all high rise buildings, schools, healthcare facilities, hazardous materials occupancies, and complex buildings.  Smaller businesses and most apartment buildings receive annual inspections by fire operations personnel (engine and truck companies).

Fire Protection Engineering staff review building and fire plans for new construction and tenant improvements, and also conduct the field inspections for projects of this type. 

Engineering staff are available at the One-Stop Permit Center at City Hall, 456 W. Olive Ave., Monday-Friday, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.  No appointments are accepted and meetings are on a first‑come, first-served basis.
