In addition to the NC Building and Fire code, fire departments in NC rely upon the NFPA Codes and Standards (opens in new window) [tutorial on accessing codes below] to guide them in the proper way to equip, maintain, and operate fire protection technology such as extinguishers, fire trucks, firefighting clothing, etc. Many of these codes are adopted into and referenced from the state Fire Code, as the NFPA itself is not a regulatory body nor enforcement agency. Each city and county may have its own selection of codes and standards it considers mandatory, so you should check with your local AHJ (authority having jurisdiction) to see which are in effect.
If you have any questions about the codes and standards, please contact one of the instructors in the Fire Protection Technology Program at Wake Tech.
As of January 1, 2012 the Building and Fire Codes currently enforced in the State of North Carolina (2012 North Carolina Fire Code) is the 2009 International Fire Code with 2012 North Carolina Amendments. (This is also sometimes called the North Carolina State Fire Prevention Code) [Source: NC Office of the State Fire Marshal]
