  2. Construction plans for outdoor fireplaces or outdoor open fires must be approved by the Fire Chief prior to construction
  3. Locations of all outdoor fire appliances must be inspected and approved by the Fire Chief prior to installation or construction

The Fire Chief will establish administrative and fire prevention guidelines which must be observed by owners of outdoor fire appliances.
