Risk Assessment - Advance Preplanning

Risk Assessment - Advance Preplanning

John Frank addresses "basic fire protection features found in most buildings and how to incorporate them into your pre-plans. These features included sprinkler systems, water supplies, smoke and heat vents, and firewalls. We hope we have demonstrated that it is not enough to simply note that a building has sprinklers on the pre-plan and be done with it. It is essential to know what to expect from the systems, how to keep them functioning in the middle of the fire, and what you are going to do if they fail or if they are not adequate for the hazard to begin with."
