§ 236-1 License of installers.

A. 
No person, persons, firm or corporation shall engage in the business of installing oil-burning or liquid petroleum gas or any type of natural- or manufactured-gas-burning equipment in the Town of Orange unless licensed so to do by the Fire Marshal of the town.
B. 
Before the Fire Marshal shall issue any such license an applicant therefor shall file with him an application in writing giving the name and place of business of said applicant, stating other facts concerning qualifications of the applicant as may be required by the Fire Marshal in order that the ability of the applicant be tested. Each such application shall be accompanied by a fee of $10, payable to the Town of Orange. Within a reasonable time after receipt of such application the Fire Marshal shall issue a license to such applicant unless he decides there is a reasonable cause for not doing so. Each license shall be for the fiscal year beginning on the first day of May in each year and ending on April 30th in each year. Any such license may be renewed if application is made therefor and a fee of $10 paid within 30 days after the first day of May following the expiration of the term of a prior license. No license shall be transferable and any license may be revoked by the Selectmen on recommendation of the Fire Marshal if the holder thereof has willfully violated the provisions of the statutes of the State of Connecticut or regulations in aid thereof made by the State Fire Marshal or of the terms of this chapter.

§ 236-2 Installation permits.

A. 
Each holder of a license, before installing any oil-burning or liquid petroleum gas or any type of material or manufactured-gas-burning equipment, shall file with the Fire Marshal of the town, upon forms furnished by him for that purpose, an application for an installation permit and if required by said Fire Marshal, submit plans for the work or a sketch of the same. No work of installing any such equipment shall be done without a permit issued by said Fire Marshal and such permit shall be issued upon application if the plans therefor are found by the Fire Marshal to be in accordance with the standards required by the laws of the State of Connecticut, the regulations issued by the State Fire Marshal and the provisions of this chapter. Each such application for an installation permit shall be accompanied by a fee of $5 payable to the Town of Orange.

No change or modification shall be made in plans for which a permit shall have been issued without approval in writing by the Fire Marshal of the town.

A. 
The person, partnership or company to whom such installation permit shall have been issued shall rectify all parts of the installation found by the Fire Marshal of the town upon inspection to violate the statutes, the regulations issued by the State Fire Marshal and this chapter, and shall do so immediately in any case where the Town Fire Marshal shall have given notice of imminent danger and, in any event, within five days, exclusive of Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
