Coffee Break Training: Building Construction: Part 3: Fire Investigations: Fire Protection Systems and Codes   [open pdf - 154KB]

"Today, fire protection systems are an integral part of many structures. These systems can activate to control or mitigate a fire or its effects. These systems include automatic sprinklers, special suppression systems including commercial kitchen range hood systems, fire alarms, smoke alarms, standpipes, and smoke management systems. The design of fire protection systems may include methods to notify the occupants and/or fire department. Failures in these systems may be due to either accidental or intentional reasons."
