Operational Permits


Code Compliance

The Code Compliance department of the Life Safety Division is primarily responsible for conducting annual business inspections for existing commercial structures to ensure safety and compliance with the adopted fire code of that jurisdiction. The inspectors perform inspections on a classification-based system. The occupancy type and occupancy risk classification determine whether the inspections are performed every one (1) or three (3) years. They also issue Operational and Hazardous Material permits, and witness workplace training and fire drills.

Operational Permits

Permits are required for certain types of operational projects, such as propane tank installs (temporary and permanent), tents over 400 square feet, open burn (which can include pig roasts, bonfires, and ditch clean-up), and special events (which can include haunted houses, carnivals, festivals, and large assemblies/gatherings). This is not an all-inclusive list.

For any questions regarding Operational Permits or Special Event Permits, please contact Captain Kent Grosse at 303-989-4307 ext. 530 or email


Forms & Permits

Once all of the forms are completed, they need to be returned to West Metro Fire Protection District along with the Permit Fee. The information will then be reviewed, and a permit issued. You will be contacted to set up a time for an inspection. During the inspection the inspector may ask to see your Hazardous Materials Management Plan, location of the MSDS sheets, training records and record keeping. The inspector will verify that the floor plan matches the location of chemicals. The inspector will also determine where and what size of placards will be needed and verify compliance regarding usage and storage of chemicals.
