ITEM TITLE

Title

City of Orange Beach - Memorandum of Understanding for Fire Code Services

Body


STAFF RECOMMENDATION

Recommendation

Eddie Harper, Building Official, will be present to discuss the need for the Memorandum of Understanding for Fire Code Services between the City of Orange Beach and the Baldwin County Commission.End


BACKGROUND INFORMATION

 

Previous Commission action/date:  N/A

 

Background:  Currently, the Baldwin County Building Department has not adopted the International Fire Code and does not employ a team to complete fire related inspections or complete fire related plans examinations. The purpose of this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) would be to compensate for this void. The City of Orange Beach would offer up a team of individuals certified by the International Code Council (ICC), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), National Institute of Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET), Alabama Fire College (AFC) to provide fire plan review and fire related inspection services for construction projects, in the Orange Beach Police and Planning Jurisdiction, under the direction of the Baldwin County Building Official.

Both parties agree that there is a mutual benefit to providing fire related plan review and inspection services in the Orange Beach Police and Planning Jurisdiction. The county will receive free fire plan review and inspection services, and the City of Orange Beach will be able to ensure that fire and life safety codes are adhered to in the Orange Beach Police and Planning Jurisdiction (e.g. fire department access, site water for fire flow, fire alarm, fire sprinkler, fixed extinguishing systems, means of egress, and other means of active and passive fire protection required by code).
