Southern Platte Fire Protection District enforces the 2003 International Fire Code (IFC) adopted by the Board of Directors. In 1999 a partnership was developed with the City of Parkville and Platte County for each of the three entities to work together and adopt the current Fire Codes. All cities have adopted the 2003 IFC.

National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards, the 2006 Life Safety Code, the 2003 International Building Code and other nationally recognized standards are heavily relied on by Southern Platte’s Prevention Division to support a comprehensive fire prevention/life safety effort. It implements its responsibilities through an integrated inspection, education, and code compliance structure. The ultimate goals are to prevent and/or control risks and protect the lives and property of its citizens.
