The third edition of Fire Prevention: Inspection and Code Enforcement is updated to reflect the 2006 ICC and Uniform Fire Codes. This book features step-by-step explanations and practical examples of the use of model building and fire prevention codes, including detailed information on the legal, economic, and political aspects of the fire inspection process. A comprehensive guide to the "nuts and bolts" of actually inspecting and enforcing code, topics addressed include: right of entry, enforcement authority, the permit system, building limits and types of construction, and fire protection systems and their maintenance. Its convenient, 3-part format enables readers to progress logically from the study of code administration, inspection, and enforcement procedures. Ideal for use as a key component of any professional fire-inspector training program, this book also serves as an excellent reference for building and property maintenance inspectors.
