Abstract : This UFG 3-600-01 establishes fire protection engineering policy and criteria for Department of Defense (DOD) components. The provisions of this UFG are applicable to all new and existing DOD facilities located on or outside of DOD installations whether acquired or leased by appropriated or non-appropriated funds or third party financed and constructed. Facilities covered by this document include all types of buildings and their contents structures whether considered temporary or permanent mobile and stationary equipment waterfront facilities outside storage and shore protection for ships and aircraft. Matters relating to fire department operations staffing and equipment are not covered by this UFG. The purpose of this UFG is to establish minimum protection requirements for DOD facilities. These criteria are based on commercial requirements set forth by national insurance underwriters and may exceed minimum national code requirements. The requirements in this UFG reflect the need for the protection of life mission and property (building or contents) while taking into account the costs of implementing the criterion and risks associated with the facility. These criteria have been established in the best interest of DOD.
