Industrial Fire Code Exemption

Texas Local Government Code 233.062 (b), states that the fire code does not apply to those industrial facilities which have a fire brigade conforming to the requirement of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration. The certificate of exemption allows for Harris County to comply with this statute and allow for industrial facilities with a compliant fire brigade to be exempt from the fire code as it pertains to construction and operations of an industrial facility.
