The Fire Marshal is responsible for monitoring the community for conformance with the 2009 International Fire Code by maintaining an active inspection program.
Fire Sprinkler and Fire Alarm permits/plan review is initiated as part of a building permit application; please contact the Cheney Building Department for submission requirements, application forms, and the applicable permit fees. Permit fees are determined based on the project valuation.
The City issues permits from its Permit Center located at 112 Anderson Road. For application forms, requirements, applicable permit fees, or if assistance is required in completing your application please contact the Cheney Building Department at (509) 498-9237.
All fire sprinkler inspections or fire alarm testing should be scheduled 2 - 3 days in advanced as the fire inspector works on shifts. Contact Cheney Fire Department at (509) 498-9291.
