CF235-01 Fire Inspection for Places of Religious Worship (3)

Overview

This class offering takes a look at the various problems encountered when performing fire and life safety inspections in “places of religious worship”. These occupancies can present new and different challenges unlike other occupancy fire inspections. Some of the topics to be discussed with code references are as follows;

Occupancy classification

Communications and language barriers, scheduling/unannounced

Obstructed means of egress, sacred or no access areas

Kitchen areas (warming vs cooking)

Open flames and ceremonial candles

Interior decorations, art work etc.

Special events, revival tents and structures

Large and small places of religious worship, and such in houses and strip malls

Fire protection systems

Other topics such as signage, laundry areas, sheltering of the homeless, etc. may be discussed time permitting. Pictures, videos, code references and fire instructor experiences will enhance the fire inspector’s knowledge to better recognize the hazardous conditions that may exist in a church.
