- Comprehensive approach to fire code regulation and hazard management
- Addresses all the bases with extracts from more the 130 NFPA codes and standards
Major changes in the 2012 NFPA 1: Fire Code help protect jurisdictions with more powerful and comprehensive fire protection requirements for fire alarm, sprinkler, and life safety issues. Adopted in jurisdictions throughout North America, this integrated approach to fire code regulation and hazard management contains extracts from and references to more than 130 NFPA codes and standards to address the full range of fire protection and life safety issues.
Work with the latest references to widely used NFPA documents, including such industry benchmarks as the 2012 NFPA 101®: Life Safety Code®, NFPA 54: National Fuel Gas Code, and NFPA 30: Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code...2011 NFPA 58: Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code and NFPA 25: Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems...and 2010 NFPA 13: Installation of Sprinkler Systems and NFPA 72®: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code.
Major changes reflect important safety code updates. New requirements in this edition mandate:
- Sprinklers in all new buildings three or more stories in height
- CO detection in new residential occupancies reflecting the NFPA 101: Life Safety Code
- Floor fire protection for new non-sprinklered one- and two-family dwellings
- Two-way radio communication enhancement systems may be required by the AHJ per NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code.
- And other changes that benefit building occupant safety
Don't delay -- reduce injuries and deaths and advance safety for the public and first responders with the 2012 NFPA 1: Fire Code. It's essential for fire marshals, architects and engineers, building owners, and professionals involved with hazardous materials. (Softbound, 662 pp., 2012)
