Guam - The Guam Fire Department is finalizing its efforts to have a complete International Fire Code procedure in place. Captain Ed Flores says they are currently reviewing the International Fire Code and updating the inspection procedures to comply with the law that went into effect on New Year's Day.
He says the current issue they are dealing with is that they have to use two separate codes when conducting building inspections. He says they are trying to come up with a uniform procedure to prevent any future complications. "We do have an approved fee schedule that's going on right now there's probably some gray area and I'm not exactly sure how that's going to work out because of the fact that they have to refer to both codes and correlate one code to the other," he explained.
Flores anticipates the inspection procedures to be complete in the coming weeks.
