Editor's Note: This ordinance superseded former Ch. 92, Fire Prevention, adopted 5-19-1981 by Ord. No. 8-1981, as amended.
The Borough of Larksville hereby adopts, for the purpose of prescribing regulations governing conditions hazardous to life and property from fire or explosion, the fire prevention code known as the "BOCA National Fire Prevention Code, 1996, 10th Edition," as published by the Building Officials and Code Administrators International, Inc., and any future editions, save and except such portions as are hereinafter deleted, modified or amended, of which three copies have been and are now filed in the office of the Borough Secretary, and the same are hereby adopted and incorporated as fully as if set out at length herein, and from the date on which this chapter shall take effect, the provisions thereof shall be controlling within the corporate limits of the Borough.
The fire prevention code hereby adopted is amended as follows:
A.

Each day that a violation continues after due notice has been served shall be deemed a separate offense.
In all matters that are regulated by the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or by regulations of departments or agencies of the commonwealth promulgated by authority of law, such laws or regulations, or other ordinances of the Borough of Larksville, as the case may be, shall control where the requirements thereof are the same as or in excess of the provisions of this chapter.
