Wyoming Fire Codes Are For Nerds and Pros [VIDEO]

Subscribe to KGAB on

When it comes to keeping the workplace safe there are certain legal responsibilities, as well as personal and moral responsibilities that most of us are probably not paying attention to. That is not to say that we are bad people. But did you know about the following Wyoming fire codes that were meant to keep you safe?

We can all follow these basics:

Know where the exits are.

Keep batteries in the smoke alarm up to date.

Make sure the fire extinguisher is up to date.

And just help, if you can, in case of an emergency. There, that should do it.

But let’s take an adventure in some drab code, and see if it is useful for the average joe.

Wyoming Fire Code section 2-1 (iv) When determining the occupant load of a Family Child Care Home (FCCH), a Family Child Care Center (FCCC) or a Child Care Center (CCC), the floor area in square feet per occupant shall be calculated by using the occupant load factor of 35.

Bet you didn’t know that, and I bet you have no idea what that means. So let’s skip that one I’m sure we are fine.

Under Wyoming Fire Code Section 106. That looks important, let’s read it: 106.2 Inspections. The fire code official is authorized to conduct such inspections as are deemed necessary to determine the extent of compliance with the provisions of this code and to approve reports of inspection by approved agencies or individuals. All reports of such inspections shall be prepared and submitted in writing for review and approval. Inspection reports shall be certified by a responsible officer of such approved agency or by the responsible individual. The fire code official is authorized to engage such expert opinion as deemed necessary to report upon unusual, detailed or complex technical issues subject to the approval of the governing body. 

Well, okay then. I hope you’ve learned your lesson. If you have please send us a note. We, also, would like to know what this means.
