NFPA 72-2010 CHANGES; Chapter 12, Circuits and Pathways 
------------------------------------------------------- 
 
Chapter 12 is new.  It brings together requirements that were formerly 
found in SIG-FUN, Fundamentals of Fire Alarm Systems regarding wiring 
and SIG-PRO, Protected Premises Fire Alarm Systems regarding fault 
tolerance.  The old "Class" and "Style" assignments have been changed 
to reflect a performance-based description of fault tolerance using 
"Class" only. 
 
Also, wiring requirements are now echoed from NFPA 70 and the 
description of survivability has been expanded.

Next week; Chapter 14, Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance.  Chapter 
13 is reserved.
