Williamson County Fire Code

The Williamson County Fire Code, IFC 2015 was adopted by Williamson County Commissioners Court and became effective on June 26, 2018. The Williamson County Fire Marshal’s office is proposing the adoption of the IFC 2018, with amendments and fee schedule. The Williamson County Fire Marshal and Director of Emergency Services has been meeting with the County Commissioners to discuss the proposed changes and fee schedule. This code applies to unincorporated Williamson County only. The purpose of this code is to provide minimum requirements, with due regard to function, for the design and construction or substantial improvement of public buildings, commercial establishments, and multi-family residential dwellings consisting of four or more units, to reduce the risk to life and property from fire. The Williamson County Fire Marshal's office is tasked with the administration of the adopted IFC and works closely with the Williamson County Engineering department on commercial construction projects in the unincorporated portions of Williamson County. Our process includes:

  • A comprehensive non-structural architectural plan review
  • A detailed review of fire protection plans
  • Permitting the development as well as fire protection systems
  • A diligent and detailed inspection program, performed by the Williamson County Fire Marshal's office
