Be sure to include information on the following topics.
Determine what type of law it is, and justify your decision.
Identify whether your local code aligns with state and federal codes.
Examine the codes for commercial and industrial facilities in your area. Do these reflect new technology for fire prevention and protection, or are they outdated?
