Absolutely! We subscribe to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Codes online via the NFCSS All Access (linked below).
The purpose of these uniform codes are to prescribe minimum requirements necessary to establish a reasonable level of fire safety and property protection from the hazards created by fire, explosions, and other conditions. The fire codes provide details for procedures, methods, specifications, equipment testing, maintenance, design standards, performance, and installation. The NFPA database is available to current SAC students, faculty, and staff.
What are the features of NFCSS All Access?
