Fire Inspections and Permits

In an effort to expand our Community Risk Reduction programs to business and residential owners, the Rocklin Fire Department will begin fire and life safety inspections on all commercial businesses and residential occupancies (3+ units). This is pursuant to Resolution No 2018-245 adopted by the City Council on August 28, 2018. The Fire Department will also be issuing Fire Operation Permits.

Submit applications for business operational permits and inspections in person or by mail to:

General information

Fire Fuel Reduction & Weed Control

Image of Defensible Space Zones

Open spaces are valued for their nature and beauty; if we choose to live within these areas we must do our part to protect our homes and our community. Living within the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) provides us with a sense of nature, yet there are dangers that must be mitigated and each of us should do our part. In the over 4,000 acres of undeveloped land within the city of Rocklin, fire fuel reduction activities are a must.
