The 2023 edition of NFPA 88A Standard for Parking Structures is now open for public input. The scope of NFPA 88A covers construction and protection of, as well as the control of hazards in, open and enclosed parking structures.
Work of fire protection safeguards for garages was initiated by NFPA in 1927 with the appointment of a committee.

As always, we encourage front line technicians, facility managers and transportation and parking department leaders to participate directly in the NFPA consensus document development process.
