The following e-mail was forwarded to me regarding the Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District (Nevada) adoption of their new sprinkler ordinances.
To Whom It May Concern:
I am the Fire Marshal for the Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District located on the Nevada ’s south shore of Lake Tahoe . I’m writing you to inform you that our Fire District just adopted a new sprinkler ordinance that now requires all new buildings to be fully sprinklered. Our old ordinance was for any building 5000 square feet or bigger. In addition, any square footage added to any existing building shall be fully sprinklered. Please see attachment. This ordinance will take affect July 1, 2007.
Should you have any questions regarding our ordinance, please feel free to contact me at the numbers listed below.
Rick is the Assistant Fire Chief/Fire Marshal for the Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District. The image (below) is a scanned copy of the new ordinances. Click on the image for a larger view, once you have the larger view you can cursor over it and a box with arrows will show in the lower right that will allow you to expand the image further. Confused yet? I also felt I shouldn’t post Rick’s contact information without permission. Way to go Tahoe!
