CRM advises the District’s Governing Fire Board on the promulgation of a fire code, including an Urban–Wildland Interface Code.
The Fire Marshal is responsible for enforcing the code. In addition to our main code, SFD has follows a group of nationally recognized standards, typically from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), which have been adopted by the District and approved by the Arizona State Fire Marshal’s Office. It applies to all buildings, both new and existing, and to all remodels and improvements. SFD also issues permits to oversee hazardous activities such open burning, blasting, materials storage and handling, the use of flammable and combustible products, and other activities.
SFD Resolution 2007-04 adopts certain provisions of the 2003 International Fire Code and the Urban-Wildland Interface Code with amendments, additions, and deletions.
