The content of Building Code Basics: Fire is organized to correspond to the arrangement of the 2009 IFC. It commences with a review of the legal aspects associated with the adoption and enforcement of the fire code provisions including permitting, right of entry and inspector liability. It progresses through common hazards that can be found in any occupancy, site and building features that must be addressed with any new construction, fire and life safety systems and features, special processes and uses and concludes with a review of the most commonly encountered hazardous materials. This format is useful to readers because it pulls together related information from the various sections of the IFC into one convenient location while providing a familiar frame of reference to those with any code enforcement experience. Full-color illustrations help readers to visualize correct code application and a glossary of code and construction terms clarifies key terminology as it applies to the code. Technically accurate and easy to understand, this is the perfect resource for inspectors, plan checkers, permit technicians and contractors.
