Permits are required for the installation of fire sprinklers, alarm systems, ansul systems and kitchen hoods. Permits should be submitted digitally. We no longer require paper copies. The installer should be listed as the primary contractor on the permit. If an installer is not yet assigned a permit may be submitted by the designer however approval will not be granted until a registered contractor has been assigned and added to the permit.
The following information is required with all fire submittals:
- Commercial Building Permit Application - List the number of sprinklers or devices on the application
- Plans - must be stamped NICET level III or higher.
- Data Sheets
- Contractor Registration application form - for new contractors
- Current fire contractors license - for new contractors, or as needed for renewals
- Certificate of Liability Insurance with the Village of Huntley as the certificate holder - for new contractors, or as needed for renewals
Some new construction, tenant build-outs and remodels will also require an outside review with Fire Safety Consultants, Inc. We are authorized for direct submittals with FSCI but we encourage you to contact us prior to submitting a review with them. All reviews should be sent as a digital submittal first to us. Our Fire Marshal will determine on a case by case basis if an outside review is needed. When a review through FSCI is needed, 3 complete paper sets are required. Approved plans will be sent back to the Village and a stamped copy will be provided to you after permit issuance. You can find information about submitting plans with FSCI here: https://www.firesafetyfsci.com/fire-protection-submittals/
All permit related fire inspections are performed by the Huntley Fire Protection Bureau. Instructions will be provided on plan review approval letters but most fire inspections including fire alarm and ansul inspections are scheduled with Development Services at (847) 515-5252. Sprinkler and Hydro inspections are scheduled with the Bureau at (847) 669-5066. A minimum of 48 hours is required for scheduling all fire inspections. Inspections must be scheduled on the individual fire permits, not on the main building permit. You must have your permit number when you call.
