Fire Prevention

Responsibilities
The Fire Prevention Bureau is responsible for enforcing the 2012 International Fire Code (IFC), which contains regulations to safeguard life and property from fires and explosion hazards, and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes, which are designed to minimize the risk and effects of fire by establishing criteria for building, processing, design, service and installation.

The Fire Prevention Bureau also enforces standards referenced in the IFC or adopted by the State of South Carolina, as well as various City ordinances. Additionally, the City has adopted the International Code Council’s "family" of codes, as approved by the South Carolina Building Code Council. The International Code Council is a membership association dedicated to helping the building safety community and construction industry provide safe and sustainable construction through the development of codes and standards used in the design, building and compliance process.
