Builders Guide

Both the Rattlesnake Fire Protection District and Elbert County have adopted and follow the 2018 International Fire Code. The builders guide is available to download in PDF format on the link below. We encourage you to thoroughly read the document and call with any questions prior to applying for your permit with the County. The Residential Sign Off Sheet (below) must be completed and signed PRIOR to receiving a building permit. The most common question for building in Rattlesnake Fire's District is on driveway lengths and required turnarounds. That information can be found on page 57.
