Fire Safety Code Board of Appeal and Review


The Fire Safety Code Board of Appeal and Review is charged with the development and administrative review of a comprehensive fire safety code covering the State of Rhode Island. The Board further evaluates the proposed use of new fire-related technologies. The Board provides the State Fire Marshal, other state agencies and over 70 fire departments with legal and technical advice. Finally, the Board sits as an adjudicatory body by providing both review of code enforcement decisions made by the State Fire Marshal's Office and granting variances from strict compliance with the code in cases of structural hardship.
