This manual was developed for personnel who serve their communities by ensuring that construction projects meet applicable fire and building codes and standards. It addresses the job performance requirements (JPRs) of Plans Examiner I, and (to some extent) Plans Examiner II as outlined in Chapters 7 and 8 of NFPA® 1031, Standard for Professional Qualifications for Fire Inspector and Plan Examiner (2003). While the structure of this manual reflects the standard, the material in each section is drawn from a variety of sources. The manual only partially addresses Plans Examiner II since an in-depth review of sprinkler or fire alarm shop drawings is not included.
A glossary, three appendices, and a bonus disc CD-ROM containing numerous samples and examples complete the manual.
Please note: This manual also comes with a sample set of blueprints that are referenced in various chapters throughout the book.
