Codes the fire department follows and enforces: 2021 IFC code and the current referenced NFPA codes. The City of Madison uses 2018 IBC – that said, we will follow the most restrictive concerning fire safety between us and the city.
The primary function of the Building Department is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the general public as it relates to the use and occupancy of residential and commercial structures. This is accomplished by the adoption and enforcement of codes that apply to each building trade. The City of Madison’s plan review process ensures that all Building Code requirements are met.
