OCFA

IRWD

  • Office is officially closed until a time TBD.  Inspectors are still working in the field assisting where needed with developers and contractors to move projects along as efficiently as possible. We are taking precautions and following the "social-distancing" protocols set out by the CDC. Inspections will be performed physically in the field; no video-chat, "Facetiming", photography etc. permitted. The IRWD inspectors have been briefed on handling conditions. If the inspector feels the "social-distancing" practices cannot be attained, inspections will be postponed and rescheduled. If the inspector approves the phase release in the field, all related forms need to be sent to the inspector electronically. Once reviewed, they will be sent to Development Services where they will accompany a completed letter of occupancy release and then sent to the developer. However, there may be a delay in this process as Development Services is working on items remotely.

SoCal Gas

As a part of SoCalGas’s response, we are taking additional safety measures to protect our customers, employees, and contractors we serve – doing our part to protect our community.  As of now, we have not seen severe impacts working with cities yet, however the situation is fluid and can change at any moment obtaining releases, permits, and city approvals. We are working on initiatives internally and with our employees, focused on the wellbeing and safety of our teams and our families. We will also continue with project planning and communication working towards timelines and installation dates.  If you have any questions or would like to review specific projects, please reach out to Dan Peters, Victor Nicholson, and Curtis Frazier and we could assist and connect you with the Project Manager and planning team for support and execution.”
