Areas of Responsibility & Duties
County Facilities Fire Marshal
The County Facilities branch of the Santa Clara County Fire Marshal's Office is located at the County Center at Charcot, 2310 North First Street, San Jose. This office is responsible for plan review and inspection of all Santa Clara County construction projects, in addition to fire safety inspections of all existing county owned and leased facilities. Jurisdiction for facilities in which the county leases only a portion of the location is shared with that location's local fire department.
All plan review submittals for Capital Programs are submitted through the Project Manager assigned to the project and in general, all issues concerning each project are addressed through the project manager. For all County projects not handled by Capital Programs, submittals should be routed to the County Facilities Fire Marshal's Office through the project’s Project Manager from the requesting department. County departments are billed directly for plan review services, therefore no fees are required when plans are submitted to this office.
