Permits and Inspections

With the mission to “Continue our low fire loss record and make Rocky Mountain Fire District a safe place for residents and visitors alike," our Fire Prevention Division partners with our communities to provide fire safety education, plan review, and code enforcement.


The Fire Prevention Division must approve all new commercial, multi-family, and residential development plans.  Once the construction of these new projects begins, we inspect the projects and ensure they are meeting the District code requirements.  Plans may be submitted electronically to  Please include your contact information and whom should be invoiced.  For permit questions, please call our Fire Marshal, Michelle Kelly, at 720-881-6527.  For payments, please call our admin offices at 303-494-3735.  For further details, click the links below.


Rocky Mountain Fire currently uses the 2012 International Fire Code.  Our Fire Prevention Division conducts inspections of schools, preschools, and high hazard commercial property annually.  We conduct other retail and commercial occupancy inspections biannually or by request.

While the Fire Prevention Division performs inspections and checks code compliance, our firefighters visit every business annually to conduct pre-plan "walk-throughs”.  Building pre-plans have updated information that firefighters can review on the way to emergencies and include the building layout, water supply, sprinklers, electrical and gas shut offs, and any other specifics about a building or its contents that would assist the firefighters in making informed decisions in case of an emergency.
