Fire Permits, Inspections and Investigations

We conduct general inspections on all commercial businesses in Brooklyn Park. The Fire Department Inspection/Investigation Division is under the direction of the city’s fire marshal. Day-to-day operations are led by the deputy fire marshals.

Fire permit applications

The fire department processes permits for fire protection systems, cooking exhaust cleaning, firework sales and more. See additional city permits here.

Installation and modifications to fire protection systems, such as fire sprinklers/suppression systems, fire alarms, and cooking suppression systems require a permit. Certain operational activities such as temporary tents/canopies, firework sales, above or below ground fuel storage, gas cylinder storage, and fuel dispensing operations also require a permit. To get started, apply online and submit your project documents. Plan review staff will examine the project and approve before a permit is issued. Projects not needing a plan review need only to submit the scope of the project and any technical documents (i.e., cut sheets) of items to be installed. Projects requiring a plan review include the following:

  • Fire sprinkler/suppression system installation/modification of 10 or more sprinkler heads
  • Fire alarm installation/modification of any new or upgraded items (City of Brooklyn Park required a UL Certificate for fire alarm systems: City Code 93A.04(E))
  • Cooking suppression system installation/modification
  • Fuel tank installation or removal
  • Tent/canopy over 400 square feet (enclosed) or 700 square feet (open on all sides)
  • Fireworks sales (in-store and outside)
  • Gas cylinder storage (permit requirements vary based on quantity and type(s) of gases)
  • New or modified fuel dispensing operations
