Who is NFPA's technical questions service for? How does it work? What can users expect?

Those questions and more are answered by Ron Coté, principal life safety engineer at NFPA, in "Questions + Answers," the anchor piece of the "In Compliance" department in the new May/June issue of NFPA Journal.

Coté typically handles topics related to NFPA 101, Life Safety Code, but in this issue he offers an informative overview of technical services, which allows members and authorities having jurisdiction to talk to NFPA technical staff about any NFPA code and standard.

Also in "In Compliance," Matt Klaus looks at why proper commodity classification is essential for determining the proper sprinkler system in storage occupancies; Wayne Moore offers more reasons to know and use the most recent edition of NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code; and Jeff Sargent writes about a simpler way to assess risk and determine the use of personal protective equipment using NFPA 70E, Electrical Safety in the Workplace.
