Demobilizing Construction Sites Safely Using NFPA241 (BCD236)

Due to COVID-19, construction sites are being shut down all over the country. Abandoned and unprotected construction sites pose a risk to the community. During this shutdown it is the goal of the fire service that builders leave their construction site as reasonably fire safe as possible. This program provides guidance that is based on compliance with Chapter 33 of the 2018 International Fire Code, Chapter 33 of the 2018 International Building Code, and NFPA Standards 1 and 241.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify risks & hazards on constructions sites. Focus on hazards that can occur during the shutdown
  2. Apply model codes and standards that pertain to safety precautions during construction
