The California Fire Code

Though we serve customers across the USA and overseas, a lot of our clients are located in California. Each state has its own fire code which sets specific regulations and best practices to prevent property damage and injuries due to fire or explosion. It also highlights rules to manage the storage of materials that could be a fire hazard and establish individuals’ responsibility in fire prevention.

The California Fire Code, also referred to as CFC, is in addition to all federal regulations related to fire prevention and suppression. For instance, there is the International Fire Code which tells what the minimum safety guidelines should be for all buildings. All of these codes are frequently updated via amendments.
