To prevent unwanted ignition caused by building equipment and systems.
Fuel-burning appliances and services shall be installed in a manner that reduces their potential as a source of fire ignition.
Electrical equipment, appliances and services shall be installed in a manner that reduces their potential as a source of fire ignition.
Fuel-burning appliances and services shall be installed so that the appliance or service will not cause uncontrolled combustion or explosion.
Fuel-burning appliances and services shall be installed so that they will not become a source of ignition.
Electrical equipment, appliances and services shall be installed so that they will not allow sparks or arcing to escape their enclosures.
Electrical equipment, appliances and services shall be installed so that they will not become a source of ignition.
Separate ignition sources from areas where a flammable, combustible or explosive atmosphere may exist.
To provide an acceptable level of fire safety performance when facilities are subjected to fires that could occur in the fire loads that may be present in the facility during construction or alteration and throughout the intended life.

Buildings shall be designed with safeguards against the spread of fire so that no person not directly adjacent to or involved in the ignition of a fire shall suffer serious injury or death from a fire and so that the magnitude of the property losses are limited as follows:

Performance Group I—High
Performance Group II—Moderate
Performance Group III—Mild
Performance Group IV—Mild

Buildings and facilities shall be designed and constructed so that the building and adjacent buildings or facilities and their occupants, contents and amenities are appropriately protected from the impact of fire and smoke.
Buildings and facilities shall be designed and constructed so that fire fighters can appropriately perform rescue operations, protect property, and utilize fire-fighting equipment and controls.
