What Is Fire Protection?

Fire protection is the science and engineering associated with the prevention, control, and extinguishment of fires. It includes the study of the behavior, combustion and effects of fire, as well as the development and implementation of policies and procedures to protect people, property and the environment from the harmful effects of fire. Fire protection is an important part of building design and fire safety management. It can help to save money, property, and lives.

Develop With Safety in Mind

Our fire protection engineer role in safety is crucial. Safety is thought of first and the planning must be done proactively. Building codes are a baseline to safety in a building, but they often contain critical issues, such as fire escape and layout concerns. It is therefore important when designing a fire protection system that we look for additional ways to improve the safety and features. Some common design issues related to fire protection are materials used in construction, the layout of the building, and fire escapes. The materials used in constructing a building have significant influence on not only the fire safety, but the ease of access for first responders. It is best when planning and designing the building to not use an excessive amount of combustible or high smoke producing materials. While they can’t be avoided it is best if the fire protection engineer makes sure to find a safe combination of materials to reduce issues in the event of a fire. The layout and flow of the building is also very important to how quickly first responders can not only combat fires, but get to anyone who may be trapped within the building. Fire escape routes need to not only be precisely planned, but also need to be easy to navigate in the event of a fire and low visibility. These are the main routes people will take in the event of an emergency so placing them in a thought out manner can greatly increase the safety of the people within the building, and fire crews being able to get to the fire and put it out.
