NFPA Proposes Security Standards


The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has
completed the drafts of its first comprehensive list of
security guidelines for residential and commercial
facilities as well as a standard providing installation
requirements for various electronic security systems. As
part of its proposed document process, the NFPA is
accepting public proposals on both documents.

NFPA 730, the Guide for Premises Security, describes
construction, protection and occupancy features. NFPA 731,
Standard for the Installation of Electronic Premises
Security Systems
, covers the application, location,
installation, performance, testing and maintenance of
physical security systems and their components.

The NFPA is inviting members of the electronic security
industry to review the documents and provide comments and
proposals of their own. The closing date for public
proposals is Jan. 5. Copies of the two drafts can be found
at HREF=>
