Free Access To The NFPA Fire Codes

Free NFPA Fire Codes

The NFPA fire codes are the “Bible” when it comes to everything “fire prevention” related.  We have used these voluminous fire codes for decades.  OSHA and most municipal fire departments have adopted all or parts of these standards as law.

If you want to have your own copy of the entire set, it will cost you an annual subscription of $1,395.

Larger organizations often purchase an expensive subscription to the NFPA Fire Codes. In the past, safety professionals at smaller organizations (and students) would often go to either their local fire department, or a larger library, if they needed to review the NFPA Fire Codes.

Now, there’s no longer a need to leave your desk to review one of the standards in the NFPA Fire Code.  Today, all of us have free on-line access to the very latest edition of the entire NFPA Fire Code!

The NFPA says –

“As part of its commitment to enhancing public safety, NFPA makes its codes and standards available online to the public for free. Online access to NFPA’s consensus documents conveniently places important safety information on the desktops of traditional users as well as others who have a keen interest. NFPA is committed to serving the public’s increasing interest in technical information, and online access to these key codes is a valuable resource.”

Just click here to sign up for your free access to all of the NFPA Fire Codes.  Signing up is quick and easy.

After you’ve completed the registration and obtained your password, just click here to view a listing of the dozens and dozens of NFPA standards that are available for your review.  

We would like to point out that you will only be able to view the standard on-line.  If you want to save or print a standard (or any part of one) you will have to either purchase that particular standard, or subscribe to the entire set.

This is a terrific service that the NFPA is providing all of us in the safety profession.  It is especially beneficial to safety students and those of us who work for smaller employers.
