Fire Prevention Bureau

The Charlotte Fire Department's Fire Prevention Bureau employs three full-time plan reviewers responsible for reviewing and approving all construction documents.

This process is done in conjunction with other related trades with the Mecklenburg County Land Use and Environmental Services Agency (LUESA). Listed below are some links, documents, and information that will aid you in meeting the requirements of the Charlotte Fire Department.

 
To request a fire hydrant test, contact 704-336-2101 for details. The Fire Hydrant Flow Request Form must be completed and submitted to obtain a test. You'll find that form in the Plan Review Documents drop-down box below.
