Fire Codes

The City of Mount Pleasant, along with the state, is in the process of adopting the 2012 International Fire Code (IFC) effective in fall 2016.

The purpose of the fire code is to establish the minimum requirements consistent with nationally recognized good practice for providing a reasonable level of life safety and property protection from the hazards of fire, explosion or dangerous conditions in new and existing buildings, structures and premises and to provide safety to firefighters and emergency responders during emergency operations.
