OS1 Fire Safety



Intent 1:

To limit the probability that egress routes from a mezzanine will become untenable in a fire situation during the time involved in reaching the exits accessible at mezzanine level, which could lead to delays in the evacuation or movement of persons to a safe place, which could lead to harm to persons.

Intent 2:

To clarify that mezzanines are to be provided with exits on the same basis as required for floor areas.

Intent 3:

To expand the application of Subsection 9.9.8. to mezzanines that are not included in the definition of floor area.
