2 hour firewall separation


How can I tell if I have a 2 hour firewall separation? What should I be looking for?

Assuming you're in some sort of apartment or joined townhome? If you're in a single family residence it is highly unlikely.

Honestly the only way to know for sure is to open the wall up and see how it is made, which isn't a good idea with a fire assembly. If the building is newer (a few years or less), the City may still have the plans on file.
