As students head back to school, chances are they’re not thinking about all of the fire safety requirements that keep them safe during the school year. As professionals in the field, however, we’re trained to know and follow the Fire Code and related requirements that play a critical role in ensuring the safety and security of our school campuses.
In my recent NFPA Live session, I take a look at ‘back to school’ code enforcement issues including furnishings and contents, inspection of exit facilities, emergency action plans, and fire drills, and how these provisions relate to NFPA 1, Fire Code.
I received this follow up question from a member and I thought I’d share it with you. We hear this question often here at NFPA. I hope you find the question, and the answer, helpful.
