Description This seminar addresses numerous issues in the 2008 Indiana Fire Code (InFC) where the fire code contains requirements applicable to construction, design, operation, storage, use and handling that occur in an occupancy, but are not regulated specifically by the Indiana Building Code (InBC). The course is intended to help building and fire code officials, responsible for plan review, identify those areas where plan review will include compliance with the InFC.
