Special Class at Conference 

*If you have any questions about the class below, please contact the OFCA office or Retired Chief Tom Wallace.

Storage Commodities with NFPA 13 and the IFC & The Benefits of Combining Fire Code and Zoning Code Enforcement & Update on the Consumer Fireworks Law and Effects on Local Jurisdictions. 

Commodities in storage occupancies have long been challenges to sprinkler systems, building owners, contractors, and authorities having jurisdiction. NFPA 13 and the International Fire Code (IFC) have complex and varying rules for commodity storage methods and protection. It is important to understand the code and standard relationship and apply the high-piled storage requirements in both NFPA 13 and IFC Chapter 32 to ensure these buildings are adequately protected. There will also be an update on the Consumer Fireworks Law and Effects on Local Jurisdictions.
