Florida Fire Prevention Code

The Florida Fire Prevention Code is adopted by the State Fire Marshal at three year intervals as required by Chapter 633.202, Florida Statutes. This complex set of fire code provisions are enforced by the local fire official within each county, municipality, and special fire district in the state. The county, municipality or special district in which you reside may also have local amendments applicable only to your community.

If you have a specific question regarding the Florida Fire Prevention Code or how it affects a specific building, occupancy or place of residence, please contact your local fire official. You may access the Florida Fire Prevention Code by clicking on the link below:
