DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
Every three (3) years the State updates the California Fire Code (Code). The Code applies Statewide. Although local jurisdictions do not have the authority to modify the Code they may adopt additional or more stringent requirements as are reasonably necessary due to local climatic, geological, or topographical conditions.

In El Dorado County, there are twelve special Districts that provide fire protection services. With this item, the Building Division has received updated Code Ordinances from three (3) districts; Lake Valley, Meeks Bay and Mosquito. Earlier this year, the Board adopted Resolutions for updated Fire Codes for six (6) other districts (Cameron Park Community Services District, Diamond Spring-El Dorado Fire Protection District, El Dorado County Fire Protection District, El Dorado Hills County Water District, Pioneer Fire Protection District, and Rescue Fire Protection District).

On December 2, 2014 (File No. 14-1478, Item No. 32) the Board approved and adopted Resolutions 212-2014, 213-204, 2014-2014, 215-2014, 216-2014, 217-2014, 218-2014, 219-2014, 220-2014 to reflect changes to the 2014 Code.
