Statue_liberty_600Just in time for her 126th birthday this year, the Statue of Liberty is undergoing needed repairs and upgrades to her interior, including safety improvements that comply with today's codes and standards, says Fred Durso in his article "Upgrading Liberty" in the latest issue of NFPA Journal. Integrating safety and historical preservation isn't an easy task, but Hughes Associates, the engineering firm chosen for the job, managed to do it with the help of NFPA 101®, Life Safety Code®; NPFA 72®, National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code; and NFPA 13, Installation of Sprinkler Systems.
