Time 10:00 a.m.
Place Conference Room 143, Larson Building, 200 E. Gaines St., Tallahassee, Florida
Type Workshop
Purpose and Effect Section 1013.12, F.S. requires the State Fire Marshal, in coordination with the Department of Education, to adopt rules prescribing firesafety standards and requirements for educational facilities. Rule Chapter 69A-58, F.A.C., Uniform Firesafety Standards for Educational Facilities, requires educational facilities to comply with firesafety standards and requirements in accordance with Section 1013.12, F.S. Rule Chapter 69A-60, F.A.C., the Florida Fire Prevention Code, which incorporates Rule Chapter 69A-58, F.A.C., by reference, provides an order of precedence if it is in conflict with rules in Rule Chapter 69A-60, F.A.C. Currently the two rule chapters conflict regarding which rule chapter controls. The proposed amendments will update the rule to clarify these requirements.
