I am trying to find out where the fire hydrant is not required because the building is stand alone and far way from the city. Does anyone know which NFPA standard has the requirements for fire hydrant?
NFPA requires fire hydrants for all new buildings in accordance with Section 18.5 of the 2018 NFPA 1 and Section 55.8 of the 2018 NFPA 5000.
Excerpt fro 2018 NFPA 1:
the NFPA 1 states that all "buildings" require hydrants, does that include the open car parking structure?
If No, where can I find the requirements for open structure that states whether the hydrants required?
I would say yes- According to NFPA 1 general definitions, a parking structure would be considered a building [a structure used or intended for sheltering any use or occupancy]. The parking area of the vehicles in a parking structure is classified as a storage occupancy.
