Building Permits and Inspections

The Cambria CSD Fire Department works closely with the County of San Luis Obispo to ensure that all new building and remodel projects comply with State fire and safety codes and environmental regulations.

All residential and commercial building projects requiring a County building permit also require a Fire Plan Review by the Cambria CSD Fire Department. The application for Fire Plan Review and other will serve requests can be found on our Will Serves and Retrofits page. Please note there is a delay in processing all Fire Plan Review applications, due to the Fire Chief's retirement in June 2022.

The Department's top priority is assuring that all buildings meet local and state codes and ordinances. Some of the fire and safety requirements for Cambria residences, businesses and other public facilities include:

  • A defensible space between vegetation and building
  • Adequate fire extinguisher systems and fire hydrants
  • Sufficient water flow to extinguish a fire
  • Adequate fire exits
  • Building construction and design that will protect occupants from a wildland fire or other external threat
