Purpose

The purpose of this Code is to prescribe minimum requirements necessary to establish a reasonable level of fire and life safety and property protection from the hazards created by fire, explosion, and dangerous conditions.

The provisions of NFPA 1 represent the minimum levels of protection needed to provide for life safety from fire to building occupants, property protection, and enhanced emergency responder safety. Building owners should carefully consider proviwhether additional safeguards might be needed based on their specific loss tolerability. For example, meeting the requirements of NFPA 1 alone might not provide sufficient protection from fire to a highly valued risk, such as rare artwork that might be destroyed upon exposure to smoke. Such determination needs to be made based on a complete risk assessment of the property. The protection requirements of this Code can always be supplemented, but they should never be reduced.

Consideration for life safety could include occupants, fire department personnel, fire brigade members, employees, responsible parties, and the general public.
