The Fire Code was developed to establish the minimum requirements consistent with nationally recognized good practice for providing a reasonable level of life safety and property protection from the hazards of fire, explosion or dangerous conditions in new and existing building, structures and premises, and to provide safety to fire fighters and emergency responders during emergency operations.

The Williamson County ESD 5 adopted the 2006 International Fire Code back in 2008 and as of March 1, 2019 Williamson County ESD 5  have moved to the 2015 International Fire Code with local amendments that establishes the minimum fire and life safety requirements for a wide range of activities within the District. The City of Jarrell has adopted the 2012 International Fire Code for anything within the city limits as the minimum fire and life safety requirements for a wide range of activities within the City of Jarrell.
