It offers minimum requirements necessary to establish a reasonable level of fire and life safety and property protection from the hazards created by fire, explosion, and dangerous conditions.

    • To distinguish changes, deletions and additions to the 2015 edition of NFPA 1: Fire Code the symbol "MA" appears in the margins of the Code.
    • Paragraphs deleted by the State of Massachusetts are indicated by a strikeout of the text.
    • Paragraphs added by the State of Massachusetts are underlined. 

    Essential for fire marshals, architects, engineers, building owners, and AHJs throughout the State of Massachusetts.
