The purpose of these sheets are to provide additional information about the requirements of the codes. While the Department relies on a consistent set of standards and adopts national codes, there are many classifications within these codes as well as many unique situations. Specific questions should be directed to your local DFS regional office.
We are constantly reviewing and updating the information on these sheets, If you have any questions please contact your local Division of Fire Safety Office.
