CLASS DESCRIPTION

In high-rise buildings, elevators are extremely useful tools for firefighters to fight fires and rescue occupants. The main reason for developing the Fire Service Access Elevator (FSAE) was to provide firefighters with a safer and more efficient means to fight fires and rescue occupants in the upper floors of high-rise buildings. The FSAE was first required by the 2009-IBC for high-rise buildings over 120 feet in height. Occupant Evacuation Elevators were also introduced first in the 2009-IBC as an exception to the required additional exit stairway for buildings over 420 feet in height. The OEE are intended to be used by building occupants to evacuate the building during fire emergencies - In case of a fire USE the elevators!

This class will discuss the specific code requirements for the FSAE and OEE + OEO  including the IBC/CBC codes and NFPA standards.

Current Editions of IBC-2021, CBC-2019, ASME A17.1-2019, CCR-Title 8-Elevator Safety Orders (ESO), and NFPA 72 -2019 will be presented

NEW Editions of NFPA 72-2022 Sections 21.5 and 21.6  and CA. Title 8 - Elevator safety Orders with Group 5 Regulations, will be discussed.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES/OUTCOMES

  1. Identify all building and fire codes, elevator codes, and NFPA standards associated with Fire Service Access Elevators (FSAE), Occupant Evacuation Elevators (OEE) and Occupant Evacuation Operation (OEO)
  2. Understand the specific IBC/CBC Sections 3007 and 3008 requirements for firefighters' and occupants' protection associated with FSAE and OEE.
  3. Understand specific NFPA codes and standards: Fire Alarm and Signaling Code  (NFPA 72) and Sprinkler Systems Code (NFPA 13) requirements related to FSAE and OEE
  4. Understand ASME A17.1-2013 as adopted by CA. Title 8 - ESO Group 5 Regulations with specific requirements for Occupant Evacuation Operation (OEO) for Occupant Evacuation Elevators (OEE) and the current ASME A17.1-2019 Section 2.27.11 -OEO.
