Sprinkler Requirements

Automatic fire sprinkler systems are required to be installed in many buildings located in the areas served by the Modesto Fire Department (MFD).

New & Existing Structures

Each fire district has its own individual amendments to 2013 California Fire Code (CFC) 903.2. Contact the appropriate agency for information about the requirements for a specific fire district.
