Building Code Basics: Fire
Based on the
2009 International Fire Code

Straightforward and easy-to-read, it is an indispensable tool for fire inspectors, code officials, fire marshals, design professionals, and firefighters alike

Comprehensive coverage and strong, clear connections between building- and fire-related concepts and the International Fire CodeŽ requirements that govern them form the cornerstone of this valuable resource.

The CODE BASIC BOOK FOR THE 2009 INTERNATIONAL FIRE CODEŽ is designed to explore the proper application and use of the 2009 International Fire CodeŽ, by offering detailed guidance of the basic provisions found in the CodeŽ.

It begins with a section of prerequisite reading, explaining occupancy classifications, what they are, and how they should be applied. This is critical in establishing a foundational knowledge that readers can build upon as they progress through subsequent content.

The book is then divided into six logically organized sections, and covers important topics as they pertain to the CodeŽ, including firefighter's response to buildings, fire department access to roadways, firefighter protection systems, sprinkler systems, hazards in buildings and communities, compressed gasses, combustible liquids, basic requirements for storage & use for hazardous materials, and much more.

Straightforward and easy-to-read, it is an indispensable tool for fire inspectors, code officials, fire marshals, design professionals, and firefighters alike

  • Facilitates understanding of each Code requirement with plentiful, detailed, full-color illustrations and drawings.
  • Reinforces key concepts with end-of-section summaries that highlight the most critical information.
  • Draws powerful connections between the content and specific Code requirements with a "Code Basics Summary" section at the end of each chapter, which offers a snapshot of the Code requirements that were covered.
