Club Fire Tragedy
National Fire group considering changes to fire safety recommendations
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

(Quincy, Massachusetts-AP) -- Members of the National Fire Protection Association's technical committee are discussing possible changes to the group's fire-safety recommendations.
   The committee is looking at many issues, including whether sprinklers should be required in places of public assembly with capacities under 300.
   The current recommendations issued by the N-F-P-A suggest sprinklers in buildings with a capacity of 300 or more.
   The committee meeting today in Quincy, Massachusetts, is also examining whether to create a special part of the code to require sprinklers in all nightclubs.
   Paul Wertheimer is a crowd management specialist. He says he believes sprinklers should be required at venues regardless of their capacity, despite the costs.
   The committee will vote on recommendations, which will go to N-F-P-A's standards council. The standards council will consider them at a meeting next week.
