New Construction Review and Inspections
Most new construction or renovations projects will require a FD plan review and approvals. The Fire Marshal will conduct inspections throughout the duration of the project.
STMFD is divided into two divisions; Division 1 (west of I 264) and Division 2 (east of I 264).
Plans for review in Division 1 should be sent to STM FD Station 1, 240 Sears Ave., Louisville, KY 40207. Major Don Ryan is the Fire Marshal for Division 1.
Plans for review in Division 2 should be sent to STM FD Station 3, 8126 New LaGrange RD, Louisville KY 40222. Major John Stich is the Fire Marshal for Division 2.
A Construction Fire Safety Requirements document must be filled out and sent with the plan for approval. Download this document here.
All plans must be picked up from STMFD Station 1, 240 Sears Ave, Louisville, KY 40207. They will not be mailed unless prior arrangements have been made to cover the cost of mailing. Plan review fees are due upon picking up the plans. Fees will not be invoiced.
