Engineering

Fire prevention and life safety starts when a building is being designed. Architects and engineers know they must refer to building and fire codes when designing new structures to ensure that the occupants will be as safe as possible if a fire does occur. But not everyone is familiar with the codes.

Engineering safety into building designs has been known about for centuries. During the time of Hammurabi (1760 BC), codes stated that the builder of a building that failed and took a life would be killed [for his negligence]. Following major fires in the United States, fire codes have been enacted to prevent large losses of life from known hazards.

The Fairfield Fire Marshall utilizes the Connecticut Fire Safety Code with an effective date of December 2005 for all new and existing construction requirements. In addition, the Building code and other standards are used to protect the public during this first defense against fires. The Fire Marshall will conduct a Plan Review prior to stamping designs for new construction.

If you have a question about a code requirement, please give a us a call at 203-254-4720.
