Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

This rule is authorized by Section 53-7-204. This rule establishes conduct of the Board and establishes the means where by the Board may amend the fire code.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

This is a long standing rule that is well understood by the Board, state fire marshals office, and the fire service. The public and fire service may address the Fire Prevention Board with their concerns at any of their regularly scheduled meetings. No one has requested to be on the Board agenda, relevant to this rule, in the last five years. No written communication for or against this rule has been received in the last five years.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The purpose of this rule is to provide minimum rules for safeguarding life and property from the hazards of fire and explosion, for board meeting conduct, for deputizing Special Deputy State Fire Marshals, for procedures to amend incorporated references, for establishing Board subcommittees, for enforcement of the rules of the State Fire Marshal, for requirements for the firefighter support restricted account, for regulation of novelty lighters, for procedures for the issuance of blasting permits, and for amendments and additions. This rule establishes an appeals board for decisions made by the State Fire Marshals Office. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
