Occupancy FA Requirements

In the fire alarm industry we have to understand the differences between each occupancy group as well as what is actually required based on the applicable codes.  In this case we have based our fire alarm requirements for each occupancy on the 2012 International Fire Code (IFC).  The section within this code that covers this material is 907.  Below are individual links we have created to breakdown each occupancy classification along with its applicable fire alarm equipment requirements.
