Fire Codes: What They Are And Why We Have Them

Saginaw Township, by ordinance, has adopted the 2012 International Fire Code with amendments. These guidelines assist STFD in the protection of property and life in the community by helping reduce the conditions in which many fires start. The fire code, in conjunction with the State of Michigan, provides the fire department authority to conduct fire investigations, fire inspections, site planning for new development, plan review of fire alarm and fire protection systems, and new construction and maintenance of fire alarm and fire protection systems.
