Notice of Intent to Adopt a Fire Code Ordinance

Notice is hereby given of the intention of the Pioneer Fire Protection District to adopt a Fire Code Ordinance. The District shall hold its first public hearing at 6 P.M. on Tuesday October 11th, 2022 at the Pioneer Fire Protection District Station 38, 7061 Mt. Aukum Rd. Somerset, CA, regarding the adoption of the Fire Code Ordinance pursuant to Health and Safety Code Sections 13869 and 13869.7. Copies of the code section referred to and any secondary code sections referred to, adopted by reference, are on file with the Secretary of the District and are open to public inspection. Adoption of the Fire Code Ordinance will adopt the California Fire Code as currently published in Title 24, Part 9, of the California Code of Regulations, governing fire prevention and building standards related to fire and panic safety with some amendments. In some instances the Pioneer Fire Protection District’s proposed Fire Code Ordinance proposes building standards more stringent than those minimum building standards adopted by the State Fire Marshal and contained in the California Building Standards Code.
