The local fire inspector is not responsible for enforcing federal regulations. However, if the inspector is aware of and understands these regulations, violations can be reported to the proper authority.
Cooperation among agencies to each work more efficiently and results in more effective enforcement of codes.
For the most part, federally owned buildings located within the local jurisdiction are not required to comply with local codes. The agencies that operate these buildings usually enforce their own fire protection regulations.
