NFPA 72-2010 CHANGES; Chapter 17, Initiating Devices 
---------------------------------------------------- 
 
Chapter 17 was Chapter 5 in NFPA 72-2007.  The term "authority having 
jurisdiction" is replaced in some sections by the term "other 
governing laws, codes, or standards".  Nominal smoke detector spacing 
is defined as 30 feet plus or minus 18 inches.  Additional smoke 
detector location and spacing information.  Additional guidelines 
regarding smoke detection installed during construction.  New gas 
detection section.  Manual fire alarm box height and color changed to 
match the building code. 
 
You can read my review of Chapter 17 by downloading it here:
