Professional Consulting Service Fire Protection

The main goal of a fire protection program is to preserve life, property and mission continuity.  Today most corporate organizations are focusing on safety and asset protection as an integral part of their operating systems, and here is where fire protection plays its unique role in all these relevant fields.  Fire protection philosophy centers around having a timely detection, notification and alarm system which is linked to a means of suppression, either auto or manual to have a quick response.   The earlier a fire is detected, the faster the elements can come together to mitigate its effects.  Historically, detection and alarm have been fire protection’s first line of defense after an ignition has occurred.  That said, the logistic suggests that an ongoing detection, notification and suppression system be installed and active, and also having on-site personnel being qualified in fire response.

 

The facility will determine the type of protection engineering to best suit its requirements and the mitigation of any arising fire clues (airborne, toxic gases and heat effects); will be the function of a Fire Hazard and Risk Assessment (FHA/FRA). These should account for the necessary means to promptly respond in terms of occupants, highly protected asset and general goods.  The pre-incident planning for emergency response documentation must cover all aspects of the protection value chain, including the means of egress, an evacuation plan, and manual and automatic mitigation technologies as well.
