The Fire District, in cooperation with the Villages of Elburn, Lily
Lake, and Virgil and the communities of Wasco, Lafox and Mill Creek
and the Kane County Development Department, reviews plans for
construction in commercial occupancies. This includes new
construction, remodeling, renovations, and additions.
A non-structural review is performed on basic
building plans to assess the type of construction, means of egress
and to help determine the appropriate use group. At the time of plan
review, information pertaining to the type of operation, what will
be stored, how it will be stored, how much of a product will be
stored, and hazard information on those products will be requested.
This is necessary not only to determine if the structure is adequate
for the proposed operation but will also help determine the
appropriate type of fire suppression and fire alarm system that must
be installed to protect the building.
Reviews of the fire wall construction, fire alarm,
kitchen hood, and fire suppression systems plans are conducted to
make sure these systems meet various codes as they pertain to
appropriate equipment being installed and that the systems is
properly designed and installed to provide the acceptable level of
protection to buildings and their occupants.
If you have any questions regarding the plan
review process or what codes apply, please contact the Fire
Prevention Bureau at (630) 262-9911.
