Amended:   At its August meeting, the Council reviewed all material presented and voted to establish the Technical Committee (TC) on Fundamentals of Fire Control within a Structure Utilizing Fire Dynamics and approved a Committee scope.  Once this Technical Committee develops and ballots a draft document (see Regulations 18.104.22.168), the Technical Committee may then make a request to the Council to enter an appropriate revision cycle. Kerry M. Bell, Chair, recused himself from the deliberations and vote on this issue.  Read more on the proposed new draft document.
At its April 2015 meeting, the NFPA Standards Council considered and reviewed a new project on fire control of structures based upon fire dynamics and is seeking public review and comment by the June 15, 2015 deadline.
