On April 10, 2023, the City of Colorado Springs passed Ordinance No. 23-14, adopting the 2021 edition of the International Fire Code and its jurisdictional amendments.  This will go into effect on June 30, 2023.  One copy of the 2021 International Fire Code and one copy of the local amendments to these codes are on file at the Office of the City Clerk and may be inspected during regular business hours.

The Division of the Fire Marshal will be transitioning to an online portal where citizens can now access the 2021 edition of the fire code. To access the fire code, please visit the Fire Code page.
