Fire Safety Plan Review/ Qualified Fire Inspectors
Importance of Fire Safety
Fire safety inspections are a necessary part of the licensing process. It is a means of assuring that the buildings used by a licensed children's camp are in compliance with essential fire safety requirements for licensure.
Procedures for Requesting Fire Safety Plan Reviews
Children’s and Adult Foster Care Camp SITES are required by R400.11207 to have a completed plan review before construction commences for the following:
a) Proposed new residential children’s and adult foster care camp SITES.
b) A new camp building for camper use
c) Major changes in, or additions to, a building used by campers
d) Conversion of a building to camper use
The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Bureau of Fire Services completes all Camp SITE plan reviews. The plan review process incudes online submission of plans. Please Note: If your project is $15,000 or more (labor and materials) than the plans must bear the seal of Michigan registered architect or engineer.
All plan reviews must be submitted online through the Citizen Portal program titled “Accela” at https://www.michigan.gov/lara/bureau-list/bfs/plan-review. This camp SITE Plan Review Help Page provides helpful information on the process.
