NJ Fire Protection Expert Explains NFPA Life Safety 101

Life Safety Code, or NFPA 101, is a standard developed by the National Fire Protection Association that aims to minimize danger to life from the effects of fire. Our NJ fire protection expert at BRAND SERVICES explains that the Life Safety Code specifically addresses construction, protection, and occupancy features that need to be maintained and updated in compliance with the most recent standards. The Life Safety Code works to minimize dangerous effects from fire, including smoke, heat, and consequent toxic gases.

The NFPA is the leading information and knowledge resource on fire, electrical, and related hazards. As such, the organization updates the Life Safety Code every three years to maintain and account for optimal standards, precautionary procedures, and technological advancements.

While the NFPA develops the Life Safety Code, the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) enforce the standards. Most recently, the CMS published Medicare and Medicaid Programs; Fire Safety Requirements for Certain Health Care Facilities, which requires health care facilities to meet the requirements of the 2012 edition of NFPA 101. Our experts at BRAND SERVICES have adopted the new requirements and are working to help clients make a stress-free, comprehensive transition.

NJ Fire Protection For Medicare Beneficiaries

Hospitals, nursing homes, ambulatory surgical centers and related facilities have worked to satisfy NFPA 101 standards since 1970. Meeting these standards not only protects the health and safety of patients, family, and staff alike, but also allows these providers and suppliers to meet the requirements of the Conditions of Participation (COP) under CMS. Meeting COP expectations grants health care providers the ability to participate in federal reimbursement programs like Medicare and Medicaid.

Our experts are highly knowledgeable regarding the requirements of NFPA 101 and skilled in the installation of necessary equipment and technology to meet the 2012 standards. Call BRAND SERVICES and set up a consultation today with the industry leader in passive fire protection and safety services.
