    Default Nfpa 1403

    Looking for some case law or current ways FD's view NFPA 1403. Looking over the 1403 document to me it shows where 1403 does not apply to just burning a building down without any interior or exterior evolutions. Is the purpose of 1403 for having a live fire with evolutions only or is it all inclusive anytime a building is being burned wether there is any training on that building or not.

    The NFPA standard applies to structures used for training firefighters. Here's a "cut and paste" from NFPA 1403's "SCOPE" section:
    1.1* Scope. 1.1.1 This standard shall contain the minimum requirements for training all fire suppression personnel engaged in firefighting operations under live fire conditions.

    If you need information regarding what actions/preventions may be needed to burn a structure NOT used for training, you may want to consult your state's environmental protection department. Most states have laws concerning asbestos abatement, tar shingle removal, etc.; also, the state may need to inspect and "certify" your structure as "approved to burn".
