Ordinance 10466 (N.S.) Adopted April 14, 2017 (Code applies to Local Responsibility Area)

AN ORDINANCE RATIFYING THE 2017 CONSOLIDATED FIRE CODE FOR THE 14 FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICTS IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY


The Board of Supervisors of the County of San Diego ordain as follows:
Section 1. California Health and Safety Code (H & S Code) section 13869.7 (a) provides that a fire protection district organized pursuant to Part 2.7 (commencing with section 13800) of Division 12 of the H & S Code, may adopt building standards relating to fire and panic safety that are more stringent than the building standard adopted by the State Fire Marshal and contained in the California Building Standards Code.  H & S Code section 13869.7(c) requires a fire protection district to transmit its adopted ordinance to the county where the ordinance will apply and allows the legislative body of a county to ratify, modify or deny an adopted fire protection district ordinance.  The fire protection districts within the boundaries of San Diego County have collaborated to adopt by an ordinance for each district, the 2016 California Fire Code and amendments applicable to each district.  The 2017 Consolidated Fire Code consists of the County's 2017 Fire Code as currently amended and adopted in Title 9, Division 6, Chapter 1 of the County Code, and the amendments of each fire protection district to the Building Standards Code based upon their respective determinations as to what amendments are reasonably necessary because of local climatic, geological and topographical conditions within the district, which are hereby ratified.
