In the 5th Edition Florida Building Code (2014), missile level E is valid in and outside of the HVHZ (Broward and Dade Counties) when it came to essential facilities.  Sure it is in section 1626.2.4 of the FBC which falls under HVHZ but section 449. refers to 1626.  In previous codes it was in section 419 so it was moved in this section of the code.  Missile E is required in and outside the HVHZ for Cat IV buildings.
