2018 IFC and NFPA Standards

Loveland Fire Rescue Authority is enforcing the 2018 International Fire Code within its three governmental jurisdictions: the City of Loveland, Town of Johnstown and unincorporated Larimer County. In addition to applying the 2018 IFC during existing-building inspections, LFRA will also use the updated code and amendments, as well as the most current edition of NFPA standards, for reviewing submitted plans for issuance of construction permits.

In the Town of Johnstown, the 2018 I-Codes went into effect Feb. 1, 2020, and in the unincorporated areas of Larimer County, the 2018 IFC went into effect May 5, 2020. In the City of Loveland, the 2018 IFC and other I-Codes will likely be adopted in spring 2020.

Check back on the LFRA website for updates.
