What is the prior fire brigade report?

The prior fire brigade report is a procedure that must be passed for all those activities that are required by law 3/2010 of the Generalitat de Catalunya and consists of:

  • Determining by classification that a prior report is required
  • Ask the City Council for a report introducing a fire prevention project.
  • The City Council refers internally to the Fire Department.
  • The Fire Brigade responds to the Town Council and the latter sends the comments to the technician.
  • The comments are responded to via a request to the Town Council.
  • With a favorable report from the fire brigade, the reform can proceed.
  • Once the reform has been carried out, a favorable control report is requested.
  • An inspector of the Control Entity checks all the points and issues a favorable report.
