Fire & Safety Regulations
The fire prevention and safety regulations enforced at Navy Pier are taken from the Chicago Fire Prevention Code, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Navy Pier Operations Department. The McCormick Place Fire Marshal's Office and the Chicago Fire Department Bureau of Fire Prevention reserve the right to make any final decisions regarding the outlined requirements, according to Section 12-20 of the Municipal Code of Chicago on Fire Prevention.
Prior to the show opening, the Fire Marshal may inspect the booths to ensure these requirements are met. If they are not, adjustments can be costly, and if a booth imposes a significant fire hazard, it will be prohibited from exhibiting.
