Fire Safety - 1.17 INTRODUCTION t The Beaver Creek Metropolitan District is responsible to provide for fire protection in the Beaver Creek Subdivision. As such, it is seeking to fulfill criteria to obtain the maximum fire protection rating for the project, to include consideration that the Subdivision is located within a unique climatic area. This would not only provide exceptional fire /life safety protection for the community, but it would also minimize insurance rates. In order to achieve a maximum fire protection rating, the project must demonstrate compliance in four areas: 1. Reliable water system. 2. Adequate fire fighting equipment . and manpower. 3. Compliance with building construction codes and inclusion of specific fire /smoke alarms and fire suppression systems. 4. Communications System linking fire /smoke alarms to a central fire fighting dispatch facility. The Beaver Creek Metropolitan District is committed to Items 1,2, and 4 above. The following regulations and guidelines center around Item 3, plus provision for connecting to a central communications system. Any variances from the regulations set forth will require written approval of the Beaver Creek Metropolitan District Board of Directors. Variances shall be allowed only when it is demonstrated that granting of the variance will cause no risk to the public safety and that undue hardship or practical difficulty would otherwise result.

As such, it is seeking to fulfill criteria to obtain the maximum fire protection rating for the project, to include consideration that the Subdivision is located within a unique climatic area. This would not only provide exceptional fire /life safety protection for the community, but it would also minimize insurance rates. In order to achieve a maximum fire protection rating, the project must demonstrate compliance in four areas: 1. Reliable water system. 2. Adequate fire fighting equipment and manpower. 3. Compliance with building construction codes and inclusion of specific fire /smoke alarms and fire suppression systems. 4. Communications System linking fire /smoke alarms to a central fire fighting dispatch facility. The Beaver Creek Metropolitan District is committed to Items 1,2, and 4 above. The following regulations and guidelines center around Item 3, plus provision for connecting to a central communications system. Any variances from the regulations set forth will require written approval of the Beaver Creek Metropolitan District Board of Directors. Variances shall be allowed only when it is demonstrated that granting of the variance will cause no risk to the public safety and that undue hardship or practical difficulty would otherwise result.
