Nashville Fire Department Unveils Online Tent Permit Application


New online portal will streamline tent permitting for special events

The Nashville Fire Department has unveiled a new online tent permit application, designed to streamline permitting for special events.

Tent permits and inspections are required for tents greater than 400 square feet for use at public and private events. Application for the permit is required to be done by the tent owner.

The application allows those hosting special events to both apply for and pay for such applications instantly. Tent permits cost $25 and applications must be made at least three days in advance.

Once the Application is approved, the vendor will have the opportunity to pay online via credit card.

In Phase 2, these features will ultimately be rolled out for all permits so that customers can pay for each type of permit online.
