NFPA-1141(12): Standard for Fire Protection Infrastructure for Land Development in Wildland, Rural, and Suburban Areas
Expanded to included wildland areas as well as rural and suburban areas, the 2012 NFPA 1141 helps save lives and safeguard property in locations that pose unique fire protection challenges.
Areas that have inadequate water supply, inadequate fire department resources, extended fire department response time, limited access, and unusual terrain demand specialized strategies to protect people and property from fire dangers, and to allow fire fighters to do their jobs safely and effectively.
The updated and expanded 2012 NFPA 1141: Standard for Fire Protection Infrastructure for Land Development in Wildland, Rural, and Suburban Areas provides the latest requirements to help AHJs, planners, developers, and code officials make sure that these locations have adequate fire protection and emergency services infrastructure to reduce the impact of land development and land use changes.
In addition to an expanded scope to cover wildland, rural, and suburban areas as reflected in the new title, 2012 changes include:
- New sections on public notification and public appeals process help the AHJ effectively enforce and administer this Standard
- Clarification of requirements for plan submittal and review
- The addition of dead ends as a subsection of roadways
Order today to improve community safety and emergency preparedness in areas that present unusual characteristics to responding fire agencies. (Softbound, 19 pp., 2012)
