Facility Manager's Guide To Fire Alarm System Code Mandates

Answers to commonly asked questions regarding fire codes, NFPA 72 and interconnections between the alarm system and the rest of the facility

Fire codes ebook

Building codes have historically been developed to help avoid large conflagrations in our cities. In the United States, the most universally adopted building code is the International Building Code (IBC) published by the International Code Council (ICC). Codes and standards specifically related to fire and life safety are also published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

This ebook series is written to help facility managers ensure that their fire alarm systems fully meet applicable requirements of NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code, the model fire alarm systems installation code that is incorporated into almost all building, fire, and local codes.

Each ebook answers an array of questions that are essential to understanding code requirements for fire alarm systems and how those code provisions affect the installation and operation of those systems. The Q&A format provides easy access to information that is both authoritative and practical for facility and property managers responsible for large commercial and institutional buildings.

This first volume answers questions about what code mandates.
