Life Safety Code

Updates to the Life Safety Code (LSC)

​The Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) updated its administrative rules, which, in part, updates the adopted life safety code from the NFPA 101, Life Safety Code (2000 Edition) to the NFPA 101, Life Safety Code (2015 Edition). These changes became effective on January 1, 2020. The text of these rules, fact sheets, links to training opportunities, and other information are available at the links below.

OSFM Life Safety Code: Core Program Online

The OSFM Life Safety Code Program consists of 2 parts: OSFM Life Safety Code Core Program and the OSFM Life Safety Code Occupancy Programs. Both are designed to provide information on the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code, 2015 edition to assist the Illinois Fire Service to build their professional knowledge and to develop a better understanding of the OSFM adopted code that serves as the state’s minimum fire safety standard and to assist in compliance with the Fire Investigation Act.  Although not required, it is strongly recommended that the OSFM Life Safety Code Core Program is reviewed first.
