NFPA's codes and standards development oversight body, known as the Standards Council, recently issued two of the association's key safety codes that will require fire sprinklers in all nursing homes, in new construction of one- and two-family dwellings, and in all new construction of nightclubs and like facilities, as well as for existing nightclubs and like facilities with capacities over 100. The provisions apply to the 2006 editions of NFPA 101®, Life Safety Code® and NFPA 5000®, Building Construction and Safety Code®; and went into effect on August 18.
