Welcome to the new version of Miami-Dade County's website. We'd love your feedback.

Request an Appeal

If you believe you have incorrectly been issued a notice of violation, or that the violation cited is not applicable to your occupancy classification, you may appeal any action or decision to the Miami-Dade County Fire Prevention and Safety Appeals Board.

Fire Prevention & Safety Appeals Board Application must be filed with the Miami-Dade County Fire Prevention and Safety Appeals Board within 15 days of the Notice of Violation.

Upon receipt of your completed application and your $113 non-refundable fee, the appeal will be placed on the agenda of the next regularly scheduled meeting provided the application and fee are submitted prior to the filing deadline. Applications received past the filing deadline will be added to the following meeting's agenda.

Filing of a written notice of appeal shall not stay the effect of any such action or decision which is the subject of the appeal. Section 14-36, Code of Miami-Dade County.

Appeals Board Meetings

The Miami-Dade Fire Prevention and Safety Appeals Board meets on the last Thursday of every other month at 9:30 a.m. at the training facility of the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Headquarters.

Appeals are heard in the order listed on the agenda, except at the pleasure of the Board.
