In this edition, fire protection regulations are not included and requirements of model codes and recommendations of code writing organizations are cited in the text. Much progress has been made in building construction techniques and in material development since the publication of the First Edition in 1944. While this Fifth Edition reflects that progress, it adheres to its original purpose to help develop construction standards for safeguarding life and property from fire.
