Fire protection is an organized industry designed to reduce the risk of personal injury, losses and environmental harm. In the event of a fire, fire protection and control procedures provide emergency preparedness. Fire safety is a component of building safety. Protocols must be followed to the letter of the NFPA law.
“I didn’t know” is not an excuse.
What is fire protection?
The aim of a fire protection system is to protect a building’s occupants and minimise the damage associated with fire. Overall, the goal is to provide the widest possible window for a safe evacuation, whilst also reducing potential repair costs..
Fire safety regulations specify that a building must be ‘compartmentalised’ into manageable areas. To stop smoke from passing through these areas, specialists will install fire doors, walls, and cavity barriers. Fire protection boards are also an important part of compartmentation. They’re designed to absorb heat rather than conduct it, and don’t shrink when exposed to high temperatures. Fire stopping solutions are used to seal around service penetrations. If a fire breaks out in a certain compartment, the fire integrity and insulation of the surrounding compartment helps to confine high temperatures and smoke to the specific area.
What is fire prevention?
Fire prevention systems are put in place so a building’s fire load is as low as it can possibly be. ‘Fire load’ is a term used by fire protection professionals to determine the potential severity of a fire in a building, based on the presence of certain hazards. Essentially, fire prevention reduces the likelihood of a serious fire. By safely storing combustible materials, and taking care of points of ignition (such as heating systems and plug sockets), we are reducing the risks associated with fire.
What is fire suppression?
The sole objective of a fire suppression system is to extinguish a fire as quickly as possible. Once occupants are alerted to the presence of a fire, the system will begin to emit a concentrated substance to suppress the flames. The exact nature of this substance can vary, based on the environment the system is designed to protect. Common examples include carbon dioxide and inert gas, as well as a range of both liquid and dry chemical agents.
