Florida Fire Prevention Code (Watch)

CS/HB 529 (Diaz) is a comprehensive bill outlining the process by which a resident in an apartment building may place combustible waste and refuse in an exit corridor. The bills require the apartment’s management staff to have written policies and procedures to ensure compliance. The bill allows local fire officials the option to approve alternative storage containers that meet the required safety conditions. The bill passed both chambers and awaits action by the governor.
