Riverside Fire Department

Public Permit Portal

Welcome to Online Services - Fire Prevention

Seamlessly connecting with our community and delivering the highest quality development services in a transparent, cost effective, and timely manner is critical to our mission as an organization.

The City invites you to register and utilize the Public Portal, powered by the POSSE Land Management System (LMS). Begin streamlining your fire permit or special event application without visiting City Hall, waiting in lines for service, or printing - saving you time and money.

Please review the brief “How To” videos provided for your convenience below, along with the tutorials to assist you in navigating the portal as you register, submit Fire Department Permits, Special Event applications and track your submittal progress.

You may also contact the Fire Prevention Division by calling (951) 826-5337 should you have any questions or need assistance.

*Please note that not every type of Fire Permit Application can be submitted through the Public Portal at this time. Please check back as we are in the developing stage of expanding our online service.
