Hi,

For fire alarms requirements for an F-1 occupancy, which section should I refer to?
IBC - [F] 907.2.4 Group F or...
NFPA 101 - 40.3.4.1
If one takes precedence over another, where do I find the part of the code that spells this out?

Thank you kindly for the help,
Ryan

Which is the adopted code, where this is built??

Hopefully not both.

If both, than the stricter of the two applies.

Will be in Wisconsin. I have a question out to the AHJ to see which one has precedent.

I thought I'd ask here, to see if it was more straight forward than a AHJ stipulation.

They should be only enforcing what is adopted by law.

Sometimes they will have which code/ standard and year posted on the building web site, if they have a web site.

Is Wisconsin a state wide code or city by city?
