On a recent project (10,000 sq ft place of assembly) the fire protection inspector required two changes to the electrical work during final inspection. First, he directed that the fire alarm panel and the building security panel could not be fed by the same circuit as the plans had indicated. He made a reference to NFPA 72. (This was transmitted to me by the owner's agent. The electrical work had already passed final inspection.) Does anyone know the specific rule he might have been referencing? Also, he required that emergency lights be installed in the 2 public restrooms. No specific reason was given to support this. Again, is anyone aware of a national code that would require this?

Due to the lack of repsonse, I am moving this thread to the "NEC and other Codes" forum. Please post your responses at this location:
