Adopted Fire Codes

The City of Richmond Hill enforces the State Minimum Fire Safety Standards outlined in Chapter 120-3-3 Rules of the Safety Fire Commissioner. While most projects will receive approval by simply following these minimum standards, the city's fire ordinance does address additional requirements to automatic sprinkler systems in some situations.

These additional requirements involve:

  • The use of Storz connections on fire hydrants and FDC's
  • The required installation of Class 1 standpipe hose connections in some buildings

For questions regarding these additional requirements, please contact the Fire Marshal's office at 912-445-2507.
