There is also information on the 8 th edition of the State Building Code which became effective as of August 6, 2010, and information on how to access an analysis of the 2009 fire experience in your county from our website. In addition, you will find a memo announcing the availability of a combination SAFE/Sprinkler Demonstration Trailer for use in your city or town to inform and educate people about the benefits of residential sprinklers.
