Contrary to what some people believe, the requirements for fire alarm systems appear in all 15 interrelated chapters of NFPA 72® , National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code, not just in Chapter 29, Single- and Multiple-Station Alarms and Household Fire Alarm Systems.” So says Wayne Moore in his colum[n "One Code, Many Chapters" | http://www.nfpa.org/publicColumn.asp?categoryID=2725&itemID=59078&src=NFPAJournal] in the latest issue of NFPA Journal . Although Chapter 29 is intended to stand alone, it also refers to the other chapters in the code for guidance. That's why users of NFPA 72 need to review the entire code when planning and installing code-compliant fire alarm systems. For more examples of the interrelationship of NFPA 72's chapters, read Wayne's column online or turn to page 36 in the November/December issue of NFPA Journal.
