With one easy-to-use resource, discover all the information you need to understand the most critical updates to the 2012 International Fire Code, the impact of those changes, and their origins. SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THE 2012 INTERNATIONAL FIRE CODE analyzes approximately 90 new or revised provisions in the 2012 IFC. These requirements cover a broad range of subjects, including construction requirements for ambulatory health care occupancies, emergency responder radio coverage, fire protection system requirements for educational occupancies, fire service access elevators, building means of egress, hazardous materials, and more. Each change analysis contains the affected code sections and includes information to help identify if the text is new language, a modification of existing language, or if text has been deleted. The changes are also listed alongside illustrations or concrete examples, in an effort to bring the technical jargon of the code into a real-world setting. The book's attention to detail, its logical organization, and its thorough yet concise coverage all make it an ideal tool for transitioning from the 2009 IFC to the new 2012 edition.
