Description:

The paper looks at fire codes in America - most of all, Chicago's fire code - and outlines how recent events have sparked new pieces of legislation geared towards protecting the occupants of commercial high rises (as well as residential ones) from the dangers inherent in not having in place a sophisticated sprinkler system.

The paper shows how America's building codes (be they in Illinois or elsewhere) are getting better - and not a moment too soon.
