    NFPA 1: Fire Code is your complete safety source for fire alarm, sprinkler, and life safety issues.

    NFPA 1: Fire Code presents an integrated approach to fire code regulation and hazard management that gives fire marshals, architects, engineers, building owners -- and anyone involved with hazardous materials -- a comprehensive source of essential safety knowledge. Adopted in jurisdictions throughout North America, the Code addresses all aspects of fire protection, fire safety, and life safety through extracts from more than 50 NFPA® codes and standards, along with references to many more. Each edition reflects updates in industry benchmarks such as NFPA 13: Installation of Sprinkler Systems, NFPA 25: Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems, NFPA 54: National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 72®: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code, and NFPA 101®: Life Safety Code®.

    The 2015 NFPA 1: Fire Code contains major changes, including: Chapter 18 includes mandatory requirements on fire hydrant location and distribution -- to assist designers with planning and AHJs and other authorities with inspections; Added mandates for carbon monoxide detection and alarm for new educational and new day care facilities and other changes reflect safeguards in the 2015 NFPA 101®: Life Safety Code®; as well as coverage of fire alarm systems for occupancies now mirrors NFPA 101 to provide additional information and reduce reference time.

    Watch an interview with NFPA's Greg Harrington, Principal Engineer, Building Fire Protection, discuss the 2015 NFPA 1, including changes from previous editions.

    The 2012 edition of NFPA 1: Fire Code improves your ability to ensure occupant safety with added mandates for sprinklers in all new buildings three or more stories in height and CO detection in new residential occupancies, as specified by NFPA 101: Life Safety Code. This edition also requires floor fire protection for new non-sprinklered one- and two-family dwellings. In another important change benefitting fire and life safety, the Code specifies that two-way radio communication enhancement systems may be required by the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) per provisions in NFPA 72.

    The 2009 edition of NFPA 1: Fire Code introduces the Code's new title and increases the amount of practical guidance available to users. Instead of listing references, this edition of the renamed NFPA 1: Fire Code provides extracted text addressing interior finish, contents and furnishings, and dust control requirements for industrial hazards. Fire flow requirements have been moved from the Annex to the body of the Code to ensure consistency among jurisdictions. New requirements address motion picture and television production work done on location, away from the main studio soundstages. Three new Annexes provide information and guidelines for fire fighters and other emergency responders, to help improve community and fire fighter safety.

    The 2006 edition of NFPA 1: Uniform Fire Code™ adds critical information through new chapters. New Chapter 6: Classification of Occupancy defines occupancy classifications to enhance your understanding of requirements and improve compliance and enforcement. New Chapter 32: Motion Picture and Television Production Studio Soundstage and Production Facilities works in conjunction with NFPA 140 to provide a minimum level of fire and life safety on the sets of these activities. New Chapter 33: Outside Storage of Tires includes provisions to keep tire storage safe from all potential sources of ignition. New Chapter 34: General Storage presents provisions that apply to indoor and outdoor storage of materials representing the broad range of combustibles.

    The 2003 edition of NFPA 1: Uniform Fire Code integrates the two most widely adopted fire codes in the United States into a single Code. A joint venture between NFPA and the Western Fire Chiefs Association, NFPA 1: Uniform Fire Code incorporates provisions from both the Fire Prevention Code and the WFCA's Uniform Fire Code, to create a document that serves communities and jurisdictions nationwide. NFPA 1: UFC is fully compatible with regulatory adoption procedures, with separate sections containing provisions for administration and code enforcement, occupancies, processes, equipment, and hazardous materials. Essential extracts and references to more than 130 NFPA codes and standards make the code official's job easier.
