Proposed Fire Prevention and Safety Rule Amendments
Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) proposes fire prevention and safety rule changes
OSFM is updating its rules necessary to protect the public from the dangers of fire, structural collapse, and insufficient means of egress in an emergency, by updating the referenced NFPA 101 Life Safety Code (2000 edition) to the 2015 edition, with certain modifications. This rulemaking also eliminates provisions relating to permanently moored vessels which are simultaneously being moved to a new Part of OSFM rules.
OSFM will be accepting comments during the 45 day public comment period, from Friday, January 4, 2019 through Tuesday, February 19, 2019. Comments may be sent to:
Office of the State Fire Marshal
