Getting Started

Fire Business Inspections

The purpose of the fire annual business inspection is to focus on preventable causes of injury, loss of life, and loss of property by providing inspections where human occupancy is the greatest and in areas containing high hazards. To achieve this, the Fire Department will advise occupants and owners on the portions of the fire code that deal with the means of egress, building design safeguards which include the building’s fire protection features, and fire protection equipment.

Fire Operational Permits

Operational permits are required under the California Fire Code. Operational fire permits, when issued, allow the applicant to legally conduct the operation or business permitted for a period of 12-months. Permits are renewed annually. These permits have been established to provide a focused survey and inspection of the operation and/or building to help ensure minimum fire and life safety requirements are maintained at an acceptable level.

Fire Service Inspections

These are services the Rocklin Fire Department is already providing, such as grazing, weed abatement and public fireworks display permits, but with updated fees. Other current fire department services were included in the new fee study and will now have permits too. For more information on the current fee schedule, visit

See Managed Grazing for more information on grazing and weed abatement. To request grazing on your property, download the application and submit it to the Fire Department at the address listed above:
