Fire Code

Commonly Referenced Codes

We do not review plans for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act or the Texas Accessibility Standards. We do, however, review plans in accordance with locally adopted codes. The McKinney Fire Department has adopted the 2018 International Fire Code (IFC) and amendment.


 If you wish to use a specific edition of an NFPA standard for your project, please contact the Fire Marshal’s Office to discuss your rationale to use another edition and the provisions you want to take advantage of.
