***New Permit System Process, Please Read ***
With great anticipation, Fire Prevention has started a transition to a new time savings and customer friendly permitting system called Shape Phx effective June 6, 2022. This system provides an enhanced user experience with easier navigation and more self-service options for you, our customer. Shape Phx manages application intake, inspection requests, workflow, permit status, and reports. This new secure system significantly benefits our customers through improved customer service, added transparency, and increased efficiency of services that the Phoenix Fire Department provides to our community. The best part of Shape Phx for our customers is the “Shape Phx Customer Portal." The Portal is available 24/7 and allows customers that register to do the following from any location; submit applications, check plan review status, request meetings with staff, upload documents, request inspections and pay fees online.
If your application request is for one or more of the below permits, you will now need to complete the application process online. Applications for these permits will no longer be accepted via email for processing. If your application is for any other type of fire permit or plan review, it will be processed as before via this email in box until the second system release in 2023.
The first phase includes the following permits:
- Nursing Care Facilities
- Day Care and Child Care Facilities
- Group Homes
- Assisted Living Facilities
- Developmentally Disabled Group Homes
- Educational Facilities (K-12)
- Behavioral Health Facilities
- Medical Facilities
The link for the Shape Phx portal and to apply for a permit is now https://shapephx.phoenix.gov/s/
You may also contact Fire Prevention at 602-262-6771 or firstname.lastname@example.org with question pertaining to the new system and application processing.
