rebar requirements for concrete footings

I'm building a 2 story deck and need to pour new footings. These are to be 26"x26"x24" min. w/2 rebar "mats" in #5 rebar. I'm not sure of the proper method of constructing these mats. Do I use 4 pieces and make a square, or do I need more pieces. The building inspector didn't specify and its not on my detail sheets.

rebar requirements for concrete footings

space 4 20" pcs of #5 in a tic-tac-toe layout - btm mat 8" high & 2nd 8" above that,,, could tie-wire the intersections but that only helps during placement so the bar doesn't move.
