About This Item

 

Full Description

Apply the 2017 edition of NFPA 909 to safeguard culturally significant properties from fire and other hazards.

NFPA 909: Code for the Protection of Cultural Resource Properties -- Museums, Libraries, and Places of Worship describes principles and practices of protection for cultural resource properties (museums, libraries, and places of worship) and their contents and collections from conditions or physical situations with the potential to cause damage or loss. The Code outlines a comprehensive protection program addressing all areas including fire prevention; fire protection management; security; emergency preparedness; and inspection, testing, and maintenance of protection systems.

This important Code also covers ongoing operations and rehabilitation and acknowledges the need to preserve culturally significant and character-defining building features and sensitive, often irreplaceable, collections as well as to provide continuity of operations.

Changes in the 2017 edition of NFPA 909 include:
  • Expanded provisions for outdoor collections and archaeological sites and their protection against wildfire
  • Additional clarification of sprinkler system corrosion protection criteria that builds on changes in the 2013 edition of the Code
  • Mandated integrated system testing per NFPA 4: Standard for Integrated Fire Protection and Life Safety System Testing
  • The addition of numerous events to Annex B, Fire Experience in Cultural Properties
Anyone whose work involves culturally significant properties needs this latest edition of NFPA 909, including owners and operators of cultural resource properties, loss prevention specialists (insurance), AHJs, automatic sprinkler industry, fire alarm industry, fire protection engineers, and code consultants.
