L+I Issues Code Bulletin For Fire Watch

Issued on September 1, 2020, by L+I and PFD, Code Bulletin F-2001 outlines specific requirements for Fire Watch during construction and demolition activity.

All active construction projects must comply with these requirements by November 1, 2020.

Please review the bulletin carefully. Although the BIA has been actively working on this issue with L+I and will continue to push for the use of technology and remote monitoring systems for the required fire watch, as well as other changes, members should plan to implement a fire watch as outlined on all new and current projects sites this November. Requirements will be enforced by L+I.
