Iowa Governor Signs Fire Protection Licensing Changes Into Law March 13, 2010

Posted by shawnpci in Fire Systems.

Iowa governor, Chet Culver (D), signed Senate File 2355 into law this week.  These changes correct numerous problems with previous attempts to license fire protection installers in Iowa.

Most notably, there are now separate tracks to follow for those who install water-based fire sprinkler systems, special hazard systems and pre-engineered systems.  Previous versions of the law didn’t differentiate between technologies and left several loopholes that created enforcement problems.

Now, with passage of this law, the Iowa State Fire Marshal’s office will have a much better set of rule and regulations to enforce throughout the state.
