Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What is the process for water flow reports for mandated residential fire sprinkler systems?

Answer: This is the process for fire flows for rebuilding in the Town of Paradise:
Residential Site-Built Rebuilds: Applicants will submit directly to PID on PID’s own application form and pay the adopted PID fire flow fees. 

Manufactured Home Installations/Replacements: Applicants will submit to Fire Station 81 on the standard fire flow form and pay the adopted fire flow fees; Upon completion, FD will continue to email a copy of the fire flow to town hall staff.

If fire sprinklers are required (because of flow or distance), the applicant(s) will need to make a subsequent submittal to PID for their fire flow to size the sprinklers.

New Construction on Unaffected Vacant Lots:
Applicants will submit to both Fire Station 81 and PID on their respective application forms and pay the adopted fire flow fees to each agency.

Question: Is there a way to report open spaces that residents feel need maintenance?

Answer: Paradise residents can report properties that need fuel reduction to the Town’s Code Enforcement Officer through TOP Access. Get the app through Google Play or the App Store, or you can access, HERE. Residents can also report by phone at 530-872-6291 x124.

Question: What’s going on with the standing burnt trees?

Answer: Trees remain a top priority for the Town of Paradise. For trees in the public right of way, the Town has identified about 4,000 trees that will be removed over the next 4-8 months. For trees on private property, the Town is still working with our recovery partners, Cal OES and FEMA, on a program that would help with the cost of removal. Butte County Fire Safe Council is also applying for grants that will help property owners offset the cost to remove trees on private property. As soon as these programs are confirmed, the Town will make the information about how to apply available.
