To provide an improved minimum standard for the safety and protection of Warren-Waukegan (Gurnee) citizens and ﬁrefighters; Fire Chief Fred Friedl, Fire Marshal Tom Keefe and
the Warren-Waukegan Fire Protection District Board of Trustees worked closely with each other to amend and update building and ﬁre codes to the 2012 editions of the International Building, Fire, and Residential Codes.
These newly adopted standards further solidify the ﬁre district’s commitment to utilize ﬁre sprinkler systems as lifesaving elements for multifamily residential, commercial, and high-rise structure that have been inherent in the community’s development since 1997.
