AUTHORS: International Code Council - ©2010
Comprehensive coverage and strong, clear connections between building- and fire-related concepts and the International Fire Code® requirements that govern them form the cornerstone of this valuable resource. The CODE BASIC BOOK FOR THE 2009 INTERNATIONAL FIRE CODE® is designed to explore the proper application and use of the 2009 International Fire Code®, by offering detailed guidance of the basic provisions found in the Code®. 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 Code®, 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, firefighters, and anyone studying to enter these fields.
