It provides step-by-step guidance through the complete fire inspection process, with special emphasis on life safety considerations.

This text identifies dangerous and hazardous conditions that could be encountered in a structure and spells out the chief areas the inspector should be focused on during an inspection. Inspectors should use the Fire and Life Safety Inspection Manual, Ninth Edition to identify existing deficiencies, imminently dangerous conditions, or a fault in a procedure or protocol that may result in a fire. Six new chapters have been added to make sure fire inspectors have the knowledge and resources available to effectively conduct all types of fire inspections. These new chapters include:

More than three hundred codes and standards form the basis for the criteria, recommendations, and requirements that are found throughout the text. Early chapters provide important background information, while the second half presents inspection guidelines for specific fire protection systems and occupancies that are based on the Life Safety Code®. This text is packaged with an access code that provides free access to easy-to-follow checklists to help you remember and record every important detail.
