The moving, removal, or addition of any non-structural walls in both residential and commercial
Accessory storage buildings, regardless of size
Fences, or replacement of two or more fence sections
Water Heater Replacements
Extension or installation of any electrical branch circuit or feeder
Building permits would not be required for items that are being repaired such as a broken fence rail, replacement of appliances (other than water heaters), painting your residence, or for the replacement or addition of any type of non-structural flooring. Always call prior to the commencement of any construction project to verify whether a permit is required 850-833-9605, or you can email the Building Division.
In accordance with the Current edition of The Florida Building Code, the following items are exempt from permitting:
Floor coverings such as tile or carpet
Minor cabinetry which does not include any electrical or plumbing fixtures
Minor drywall repairs
Portable Heating or cooling appliances
Other minor home repairs as deemed exempt by the Building Official.
If you have any questions, please contact our Building Division.
Engineered plans are required on all new commercial or residential construction including accessory dwelling units, additions, remodels for which the scope of work includes structural alterations, accessory structures and repair to code projects.

No. A licensed contractor would be required to pull the permit and do the work.
Yes, pursuant to Florida Statute 489.103(7) an owner/occupant of a property may be issued a permit to do contracting work on their own property. An affidavit must be signed establishing the owner-builder exemption. An owner/builder may only hire licensed subcontractors in those trades that carry a contractor's license.
"Owners of property when acting as their own contractor and providing direct, onsite supervision themselves of all work not performed by licensed contractors, when building or improving farm outbuildings or one-or-two family residences on such property for the occupancy or use of such owners and not offered for sale or lease, or building or improving commercial buildings, at a cost not to exceed $75,000, on such property for the occupancy or use of such owners and not for sale or lease." Florida Statutes, ss:489.103.
A very simplified answer is “liability.” Should you decide to apply for a building permit and complete the work yourself, you will be responsible to ensure that all work meets the minimum standards of the Florida Building Code. If you decide to hire a licensed contractor to conduct the work, he or she would be required to meet the minimum standards of the Florida Building Code (FBC). In addition, most contractors provide some type of warranty on the work conducted and you would have recourse with the Construction Industry licensing Board (CILB) or the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) should the contractor fail to complete the work, or it does not meet the standards of the FBC.
If you feel your contractor has committed fraud, misconduct, negligence, or has abandoned their contracted duties, you may wish to filke a complaint against their license. While much of this is a civil issue, we can help you contact the correct departments to take action.
You will need to contact the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR). You can file a complaint online or contact the local office at (850)-487-1395.
If you wish to replace your general contractor but replace them with another contractor, you will need to complete our Release of Contractor form. Once this form is completed, your new contractor will fill out an Assumption of project by Contractor form.
If an owner-builder or a contractor pulled a permit for a job but the work is no longer being completed by anyone and the permit is no longer needed, you would file a cancellation form.
No. You may complete an application online at Employment Opportunities page. Human Resources only accepts applications Online.

Make sure your house number is clearly posted so that emergency responders can find you quickly. If you call 9-1-1 from a cell phone and you don’t know the address, look around for street signs, business signs, and landmarks to help identify your location. If you accidentally call 9-1-1, DON’T HANG UP!! Wait for the 9-1-1 professional to answer and let them know it was an accident.
Firefighters must train in some capacity every day. We are required to train an average of 20 hours a month in fire related training in areas such as: fire ground operations, medical emergencies, Hazmat mitigation, and rope rescue. Firefighters also conduct pre-fire plans, inspect hydrants, and maintain equipment and stations. We also prepare meals, exercise, study and sometimes relax, but we are always prepared to answer emergency calls.
Fort Walton’s Insurance Service Organization (ISO) rating is a 3. Traditionally, the insurance industry utilizes a fire protection ISO rating as one of the factors they use in determining commercial and residential fire insurance rates for consumers. The rating surveys a variety of factors including water supply infrastructure, types and maintenance of protection equipment, firefighting staffing and training, station locations, dispatching systems, etc. Fire departments are then assigned an ISO rating, beginning with the highest of 1 through the lowest of 10. ISO 3 is an excellent rating that saves our citizens money on insurance costs.
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) provide Basic Life Support and Paramedics provide Advanced Life Support (ALS). ALS care consists of establishing Intravenous line (IV), administering numerous life-saving medications, cardiac monitoring including 12 lead, pediatric advanced life support, and advanced airway management. EMT care is anything and everything of a lesser skill level. You must be an EMT before you can be a Paramedic. Most local departments are Basic Life Support (BLS) care providers.
9-1-1 is only to be used in emergency situations. An emergency is any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police/sheriff, the fire department or an ambulance. If you are ever in doubt as to whether a situation is an emergency you should call 9-1-1. It’s better to be safe and let the 9-1-1 call taker determine if you need emergency assistance. If you call 9-1-1 by mistake, do not hang up. Tell the call taker what happened so they know there really isn’t an emergency.
Fort Walton Beach Fire Department (FWBFD) is a full career Fire Department (FD) made up of 33 line Firefighters, the Staff consisting of the Chief, administrative coordinator, Fire Marshal, and one Inspector. The Fort Walton Beach Fire Department was established in 1941 with an all-volunteer force, and we operated as such until the early 80s when the department transformed into a full career department. Our main station is located on Hollywood Boulevard NE. Station 6 houses our administrative offices, Truck 6, and Rescue 6. Our second station on Lewis Turner Boulevard houses Engine 7. Truck 6, Rescue 6, and Engine 7 operate with at least one paramedic, and all provide Advanced Life Support Paramedic Care.
During a structure fire, temperatures inside a structure are often 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit. By cutting a hole in the roof and/or breaking out windows, we are ventilating the building. The heat is allowed to escape through these openings thereby making it safer for firefighters to enter the building and apply water directly on the fire. This extinguishing strategy is key to stopping a structure fire quickly, and actually helps minimize damage to other rooms.
Fire Department units are dispatched according to information received by the 9-1-1 call taker. Your Fire Department responds with adequate resources to deal with the worst that could happen since discovering that we need more units once we arrive is often too late. A structure fire requires a defined number of people to do all the assigned tasks almost simultaneously. Crews are assigned tasks such as fire extinguishment, search and rescue, ventilation, salvage, safety, accountability, and rapid intervention (safety team to rescue fellow firefighters).
On occasion, the fire engine and ambulance will be driving with lights and sirens and then suddenly turn them off–perhaps only to turn into a shopping center parking lot or side street. Be assured that when this happens it means we have received information through our 9-1-1 dispatchers that the call or incident is no longer a dire emergency. It is what we call “being canceled en route”. Any or all of the apparatus may continue to drive to the call or perhaps some will return to the station.
Many times a fire engine will arrive when an ambulance is called because it is the closest emergency vehicle to the scene. The Fort Walton Fire Department is an Advanced Life Support (ALS) First Responder agency and each of its fire stations maintain licensed Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians. By setting up our fire engines to handle all types of calls we can provide advanced emergency medical care. Therefore, we can provide whatever aid is necessary until an ambulance arrives.

The NPDES permit program was created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1973 as a result of the Clean Water Act passed by Congress. Stormwater runoff is regulated under this program and the program responsibility was delegated to the states. The City of Fort Walton Beach has held the NPDES ms4 permit for approximately 6 years under the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The permit outlines a customized stormwater management plan to be followed by each municipality holding a permit. There are 6 minimum control measures and certain best management practices (BMP’s) to be implemented within each minimum control measure. These include Public Education and Outreach, Public Participation and Involvement, Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination, Construction Site Runoff Control, and Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping.
The City of Fort Walton Beach is an ms4 (municipal separate storm sewer system). Like other municipalities around the country, this means that stormwater is collected by a system of conveyances such as ditches, curbs, catch basins, and underground pipes and drains to waters of the State- Choctawhatchee Bay, Santa Rosa Sound, and tributaries. When the original drainage system for the City was laid, polluted runoff was not nearly as much of a concern as flooding. Now, there are far more cars and chemicals being used which produce oil leaks, other car fluid leaks, brake dust, fertilizers, pesticides, cigarette butts, and other pollutants that drain with stormwater to our local waterways. The permit program regulated by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is designed to reduce the contamination of stormwater runoff and prohibit illicit discharges to the ms4. Contaminated runoff can impact our local waterways in many ways and even contribute to surface water quality decline. Water quality is important to maintaining the uses and values we associate with our water bodies including recreational and commercial fishing, swimming, boating, and other activities.
The City educates the public through the distribution of educational articles and includes stormwater management discussions on “City Desk” a televised community awareness program. The City has also implemented many other programs and activities to achieve the goals of the stormwater management plan such as the Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE) program, which helps to maintain the local Drainage Basins (PDF). Check out the links to BMP’s and nonpoint source pollution on the stormwater home page for more information on stormwater management. Also, look for upcoming workshops and flyers being distributed about stormwater runoff!
