PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh leaders are introducing a new testing program to better protect homes from catching fire.
The Pittsburgh Department of Permits, Permits, and Inspectors is looking at speeding up the process for people to apply for a fire alarm and extinguishing permit.
Starting March 1, applicants will be able to pay an additional fee for the expedited 5-day package review.
This is five times faster than the department’s standard plan review.
Before taking office, Mayor Ed Gainey said he wanted to update the department’s application process after hearing complaints that the processes were inefficient and outdated.
Over the next few months, the department is looking to expand this program and other types of permits.
