Page 41, Section 509 under Code Requirements should read: 509 Fire Department Access to Equipment Fire Protection Equipment Identification and Access 14. Page 42, 2 nd bullet under Step 2.1 should read: Group B, F and M buildings having an occupant load > >500 persons or > >100 persons above or below the lowest level of exit discharge 15. Page 44, Table should be deleted and Table from the 2009 IFC should be inserted. 16. Page 46, Step 7 should read: Step 7: Verify Fire Department Access to Protection Equipment is Identified and Accessible (Section ) 17. Page 46, Steps should read: Step 8.1: Verify elevators recall to the primary floor when elevator lobby smoke detectors are activated. Elevators with a travel distance of at least 25 feet (usually three floors) above or below the main floor are required to be equipped with a system that automatically returns the elevator car to the primary level upon activation by a key in the lobby or by a smoke detector in the elevator lobby. This is known as Phase I: Emergency

3 Recall Operation. New elevators meeting the above distance requirements are also required to be equipped with the emergency recall operation feature plus a system by which fire fighters can operate the elevator car from within, during an emergency. This is known as Phase II: Emergency In-car Operation. Verify that all keys needed for the proper operation of emergency service elevators and hoistway access keys are kept on the premises in an approved location. Step 8.2: Test elevators equipped with fire fighter mode features to confirm operation. Newer elevators meeting the above distance requirements are also required to be equipped with the emergency recall operation feature plus a system by which fire fighters can operate the elevator car from within, during an emergency. This is known as Phase II: Emergency In-car Operation. Step 8.3: Verify that all keys needed for the proper operation of emergency service elevators and hoistway access keys are kept on the premises in an approved location. 18. Page 51, Objectives should read: After completing Chapter Module 5 you will be able to do the following: 19. Page 54, Step 4.3 should read: Step 4.3: Examine illumination of egress pathway. For buildings built before the 2009 IBC, check that illumination for the egress way is automatically provided from an emergency system in the event of a power failure: Group A where there are 50 or more than 50 occupants, or 300 or more than 300 when used exclusively as a place of worship. Group B where the building is three or more stories tall, there are 100 or more than 100 occupants above or below the exit discharge, or where there are 1,000 or more occupants. Group E in interior stairs, corridors, windowless areas with student occupancy, shops and laboratories. Group F where there are more than 100 occupants. Group I. Group M buildings larger than 3,000 square feet or larger. Groups R-1, R-2 and R Page 54, Step 5.2 should read: Step 5.2: Check that doors swing in the direction of egress travel if the occupant load is more that 50 or more. 21. Page 55, Step 7.1 should read: Step 7.1: Verify, based on the occupant load, that the minimum number of exits are available as listed in Table and of the 2009 IFC. 22. Page 55, revise the title for Table as follows: TABLE SPACES WITH ONE MEANS OF EGRESS EXIT OR EXIT ACCESS DOORWAY 23. Page 56, revise notation in Figure 14 to read as follows: Width per

4 24. Page 57, Step 10 items should read: Step : Check obstructions to egress. Items such as storage in the corridor, difficulty opening exit doors or exit access doors, visible obstruction of exit signs, handrails on stairs and ramps. Step : Check stairways in existing buildings and verify that floor number markings are provided on the same basis as new stairs. This enables the fire department to promptly respond to the correct floor in the event of an emergency, as well as makes occupants aware of their egress progress under adverse conditions. 25. Page 59, Objectives should read: After completing Chapter Module 6 you will be able to do the following tasks: 26. Page 62, Step 5.4 should read: Step 5.4: Verify that an extinguisher weighing less than 40 pounds (18 Kg) or less is installed so that its top is no more than 5 feet (1524 mm) above the floor. 27. Page 65, Objectives should read: After completing Chapter Module 7 you will be able to do the tasks that follow: 28. Page 69, Objectives should read: After completing Chapter Module 8 you will be able to do the following: 29. Page 75, Objectives should read: After completing Chapter Module 9 you will be able to do the following: 30. Page 75, Code Requirements should read: The following 2009 IFC code sections apply to a general inspection of hazardous materials fire-resistance-rated construction and flammable decorations in a commercial building: 703 Fire-Resistance-Rated Construction 704 Floor Openings and Shafts 803 Interior Wall and Ceiling Finish and Trim in Existing Buildings 806 Decorative Vegetation in New and Existing Buildings 807 Decorations and Trim Decorative Materials Other Than Decorative Vegetation in New and Existing Buildings 31. Page 76, Step 1.5 should read: Step 1.5: Inspect vertical openings in existing buildings. Interior vertical openings, including but not limited to stairways, elevator hoistways, service and utility shafts, that connect two or more stories in a building shall be enclosed or protected as specified in Section through In general, vertical openings penetrating more than one floor must be protected in a fire-resistance-rated shaft. Section provides methods to protect these existing openings. Table is The provisions in Section are only applicable to existing buildings, because the requirements for vertical openings in new structures (in the IBC) exceed the requirements in the IFC.

5 Complying with the current regulations in the IBC may present an impractical solution; therefore the intent of the IFC requirements is to bring the existing vertical opening up to a level of increased safety. 32. Page 77, Step 4.1 should read: Step 4.1: Check that the amount of combustible decorative material does not exceed 10 percent of the specified wall or ceiling area to which it is attached. See exception for A occupancies that are equipped with sprinklers in accordance with Section Page 81, Objectives should read: After completing Chapter Module 10 you will be able to do the following: 34. Page 82, Laws, Codes and Ordinances should read: During the course of a governing body s existence many laws, codes and ordinances are passed. In some cases, there are amendments made to a recently passed code. It is important for the inspector to review ALL documents that may pertain to a situation. Even more important is to gather the applicable legal documents into one area of the inspector s office so the research is documents are at hand when a violation or other situation needs to be resolved or defended. During publication of the IFC, errors occur in the process. When these items are identified, they are published and made available as errata.
