NFPA 72-2010 Chapter 29
Single- and Multiple-Station Alarms and Household Fire Alarm Systems 
-------------------------------------------------------------------- 
 
Chapter 29 was Chapter 11 in NFPA 72-2007.  New requirements for 
notification appliances used for mild to severe hearing loss and 
profound hearing loss.  New requirements for nonsupervised wireless 
interconnected alarms.  New smoke detector location and spacing 
guidelines from Chapter 17, including the elimination of the so-called
dead-air space regarding smoke detector location. 
 
You can read about all of the changes by downloading my Chapter 27 
review here:
