Fire Protection Research Foundation report: "Non-Fire Hazard Provisions in NFPA Codes and Standards: A Literature Review"
Author: Paul Kashmanian – Fire Protection Research Foundation
Date of issue: November 2013

Introduction

While the scope of NFPA 101, Life Safety Code, has typically been focused on building features necessary to minimize danger to life from fire, it also considers non-fire emergencies. Over the last few decades, the NFPA 101 technical committees have considered several proposals that concern the scope of the document relevant to hazards other than fire. However, the extent of nonā€fire related provisions in NFPA 101 as well as how other NFPA codes and standards address non-fire hazards needs to be better understood. The main objective of this project was to develop a well-organized inventory of the life safety provisions in NFPA 101 and other NFPA codes and standards that related to hazards other than fire.
