The Alberta Fire Code 2014 (AFC) sets out the technical provisions regulating:

  • activities related to the construction, use or demolition of buildings and facilities
  • the condition of specific elements of buildings and facilities
  • the design or construction of specific elements of facilities related to certain hazards
  • protection measures for the current or intended use of buildings.

The AFC 2014 complements the Alberta Building Code 2014, and both must be considered when constructing, renovating or maintaining buildings.

New information has been added to the AFC 2014 to make it easier to apply to existing buildings and more accommodating to innovation, including provisions to ensure fire safety and protection during the construction or demolition of six-storey wood buildings based entirely on the upcoming 2015 National Model Construction Codes.
