HB 12-1268: Temporary Rules in Effect while Final Rules are Developed

This message is from the Division of Fire Prevention and Control at the Colorado Department of Public Safety.

I would like to thank all of you who have worked so hard with us these past few weeks as we have been developing these temporary rules to implement the provisions of House Bill 12-1268. The Bill transfers the Building, Fire, and Life Safety functions from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Health Facilities and Emergency Medical Services Division to the Department of Public Safety, Division of Fire Prevention and Control.

Through drafting, public meetings, and stakeholder discussion we have developed the attached temporary rules to implement this transition on an interim basis. I have signed these rules today to be effective upon the transition on July 1st, 2013. In the coming weeks we will be working with our Board of Appeals (created in the Bill) and stakeholders like you to develop final rules related to this program.

We look forward to working with you in the near future and in the years to come.


From: Paul L. Cooke, Director of Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control
