Standard for Fire Protection Infrastructure for Land Development in Suburban and Rural Areas
|Publication Date:||1 January 2008|
This standard applies to planned building groups in suburban and rural areas that the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) determines would be impacted by one or more of the following during a fire: limited water supply, limited fire department resources, extended fire department response time, delayed alarms, limited access, hazardous vegetation, unusual terrain, or unusual characteristics.
This standard applies to new planned building groups. If the authority having jurisdiction determines that additions to existing structures or new structures negatively impact the fire hazard of the overall building group, the necessary requirements of this standard shall be imposed. This standard does not apply to farms or to mobile home or recreational vehicle parks.
