Q AND A:
--------

Mike,

Do you know which edition of the code first required audible 
interconnectivity of single station smokes?

Thanks, 

Laurie 
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------- 
 
Laurie,

I've traced this requirement back to NFPA 74-1984 "Standard for the 
Installation, Maintenance and Use of Household Fire Warning Equipment." 

Best regards,
 
Mike 
 
This response should not be considered a formal interpretation but 
rather the author's opinion.
