Fire Protection System Permits

Important Information on changes in permitting and the State of Massachusetts Revised Fire Code 527CMR1 (PDF). As of January 1, 2015, the Falmouth Fire Rescue Department/Fire Prevention Bureau no longer issues permits for the installation of fire protection systems. However, the Massachusetts State building code requires fire department review and approval under 780 CMR 107.1.2. Construction plans are to be simultaneously submitted to both the Town of Falmouth Building Department and the Fire Department.
