NFPA 72 provides the latest safety provisions to meet society's changing fire detection, signaling, and emergency communications demands. In addition to the core focus on fire alarm systems, the Code includes requirements for mass notification systems used for weather emergencies; terrorist events; biological, chemical, and nuclear emergencies; and other threats.
NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and NFPA’s efforts to safeguard our attendees at NFPA meetings, the NFPA 72 Second Draft meetings are being held as a series of telephone/web conferences (see Next Edition tab for details) during the months of June and July 2020. NFPA extends sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your understanding and continued interest in the development of NFPA Standards.
