The State of Florida has adopted the Florida Fire Prevention Code, NFPA Life Safety Code, and the Florida Building Code. Protecting a building from the weather or from illegal entry, after a fire or weather disaster, is not only a smart economic decision but a legal responsibility that can be accomplished by hardening the target with the proper board up procedures. In Florida, after a fire department crew leaves the scene, the property owner is faced with a decision on how to best secure the building. Although local ordinances vary slightly from one city to another within Florida, their Fire Protection code reads something like:

"Every person owning or having charge or control of any vacant building or premises shall remove all combustible storage, waste, refuse, and vegetation and shall lock, barricade, or otherwise secure all windows, doors, and other openings to prohibit entry by unauthorized persons."

Not meeting the requirement of the local city ordinance will result in an ongoing daily fine or the city will do the board up procedure themselves and put a lean on the property for the cost involved.

In addition to meeting city and Florida state requirements, proper board-up procedures are an insurance concern. The insurance company will usually pay for the services of a board up crew, and if steps are not taken to protect the property then the insurance company may not cover any additional losses resulting from not protecting the property from further loss.
