In_compliance_240"Tis the season for outdoor events, many of which take place in tents. And just because a tent isn't a building doesn't mean it doesn't have to meet certain fire safety criteria. In his column, "In Compliance" in the latest issue of NFPA Journal, Chip Carson discusses some of the relevant requirements of NFPA 101®, Life Safety Code®; NFPA 1, Fire Code; and NFPA 701, Standard Method of Fire Test for Flame Propagation of Textiles and Films.
