Event Planning: Risk Information
The City of Riverside Fire Department requires an Event Permit (PDF file) in conjunction with fire safety regulations for Places of Assembly. In accordance with the Uniform Fire Code (UFC) with particular attention to Article 25—Places of Assembly (PDF file), an event permit will be required for Places of Assembly whether it is an indoor or outdoor facility.
The standard event permit fee is $145 with inspection or $50 without an inspection, per event. However, if we can provide the Fire Marshall with an activity calendar list of events, dates, time and location with a rough diagram (of seating arrangements or equipment) for the entire year they may consider issuing an annual permit for all events.
Also, a food handling permit is required if preparing or serving food at any temporary event. The activity coordinator must obtain a Temporary Food Facility/Community Event Coordinator’s Application directly from the Department of Environmental Health at 4065 County Circle Dr., Riverside CA, 951-358-5172. For more information view Information Bulletin No. 00-02 (PDF file) or go to www.rivcoeh.org. An approved copy of the permit must be submitted to the office of Risk & Safety prior to the event.
