Business and Residential alarm systems must be registered with the El Segundo Police Department. There is a charge for each false alarm response after three responses during each calendar year. The 4th response = $200, 5th response = $300, and 6th and subsequent responses = $400.
The Fire Department inspects business places and apartment houses on a regular schedule. Each business tenant (not the building owner) may be subject to an annual charge. Apartment house owners (not the tenants) are also subject to the charge. The amount is based on the size of the facility.
Certain activities, such as welding, cutting & paint-spray booths and storage of flammable liquids, may require a Fire Permit. Based on the Uniform Fire Code, the need for a fire permit will be determined by Fire Prevention Personnel. Contact the Fire Prevention office in the Fire Department directly for specific requirements.
Any building or structure regulated by the Uniform Building Code which is erected, constructed, enlarged, altered, repaired, moved, improved, removed, converted, or demolished will require a Building Permit. Separate plumbing, electrical and mechanical permits may be required, even if exempted from needing a building permit. In addition, other City approvals or permits may be required. It is strongly recommended that you contact the Planning Division and Fire Department, before you proceed with any construction.
