Fire Code


The Phoenix Fire Code, based on the International Fire Code,  provides minimum fire and life safety standards for buildings, processes and fire protection equipment installations in the City of Phoenix. The Phoenix Fire Code is a companion code to the International Codes which were adopted by the City of Phoenix Planning and Development Department establishing the construction requirements for all development in the City of Phoenix. 

2012 Phoenix Fire Code

Effective July 1, 2013 the current Phoenix Fire Code is based on the 2012 International Fire Code. Phoenix Fire Department has adopted updated versions of the NFPA Standards. For a list of currently adopted standards please refer to Phoenix Fire Code Chapter 80.  In an effort to bring Fire Department fees in line with the City of Phoenix Planning and Development, the Fire Department increased the base hourly rate from $135 to $150, see Chapter 81.
