Follow the 2016 NFPA 820 to safeguard lives, property, business continuity, and the environment from fires and explosions in wastewater facilities.
Referenced nationwide by engineers, designers, installers, contractors, and facilities managers as well as by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs), NFPA 820: Standard for Fire Protection in Wastewater Treatment and Collection Facilities establishes requirements for construction, ventilation, and electrical installation in wastewater collection systems and liquid and solid treatment processes and facilities for protection against fire and explosion hazards. It also includes the hazard classification of specific areas and processes.
Improvements in the 2016 edition help you work confidently to protect lives and property from hazards:
- Reformatted tables offer better readability for everyone who references this important Standard.
- Revised construction requirements clarify that while building component requirements are in accordance with NFPA 820, general building requirements are in accordance with NFPA 5000®: Building Construction and Safety Code®.
Protect your community by keeping wastewater treatment facilities up-to-code.
Make sure your fire protection knowledge is current with the latest methods to help ensure personnel safety, public safety, and property protection in and around wastewater treatment facilities. (Softbound, 56 pp., 2016)
