Does NFPA allows omission of seismic protection requirements of Fire protection systems for Basements of Buildings?
Depends on the type of fire protection system. If you are referring to sprinkler systems, standpipe systems and service mains, there are no omissions allowed unless permitted by the Authority Having Jurisdiction.
If the building is in a seismic zone the basement can also be affected by earth movement. The code does not allow for any exemption.
