    From Ron Ritchey at the NFSA: 

    I'm writing to spread the word about a new database for local fire protection requirements (www.CodeCalls.org). The  National Fire Sprinkler Association is supporting this initiative being conducted by  Meyer Fire  and the Building Code Blog , who are the co-founders of Code Call, to collect detailed local requirements for the design of Automatic Fire Sprinkler/Standpipe Systems and then share this information in a free public database for designers, contractors, and code officials to improve the overall construction design build process. 

    The State of Indiana has been selected for this “beta test” based upon our geography which contains a mixture of diverse urban, suburban, and rural population.

    I am hoping you will take a couple of minutes and answer the brief survey here: https://www.codecalls.org/contribute-data

    Thank you in advance for your assistance in helping collect this information. If you have any questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly at ritchey@nfsa.org . You can also contact the founders of the Code Calls project, Joe Meyer (Joe@codecalls.org) and/or Chris Campbell (chris@codecalls.org).
