Fire Protection Permits and Procedures

City Hall is currently closed to the public. The Fire Marshals office will accept FPS applications electronically. Applications attached to existing permits under the old system (BLD20XX) should be emailed to Permits@rockvillemd.gov. All other applications should be submitted via the MGO portal.

FPS Submission requirements:

  • Completed application (please be sure to use the updated application), plans and supporting documents must be in PDF format.
  • File names should reflect the file’s content (for example, “123_Main_Street_Application”; “123_Main_Street_Plans”). 
  • Digital files should be unlocked and fully editable. All digital signatures must be approved/flattened prior to submission so as not to interfere with the plan review code compliance mark-ups on the plans.
  • Please send separate documents for plans, specifications and calculations. All plan pages shall be combined into one document.
  • Maximum file size is 25 MB.

Review, markups, comments and approval stamps will be made electronically. Permit fees are to be paid online. Once paid, the permit & plans will be emailed to the applicant or uploaded to the MGO portal. For any questions regarding submittal, contact permits@rockvillemd.gov.

For fire inspections, complete the request online or schedule using MGO and a representative from the fire marshal’s office will contact you.
