Highest Levels Of Fire Protection Services Helps In 2 Goals To Be Achieved

Oct 30th 2014 at 11:49 PM

After a series of fire accidents, being caused in India due to lack of sufficient fire fighting arrangements in the buildings, plenty of organisations are taking extreme steps to make their buildings fire proof. To add to the arrangements of fire protection services, they are also seeking turnkey project contractors to equip the building with necessary fire fighting equipments to help control the spread by local people inside the building. Under the ambit of fire & safety consultancy, there should be adequate information and sensitisation provided to the people about the possible ways to fight the fire and prevent the further spread. From the outside perspective, such an accomplishment might look farfetched, but it is not so, when the fire prevention engineering and protection services are properly executed. There should be stress on two very important aspects of fire protection services, aimed at prevention and spread of fire, along with ensuring that the property and life damage is reduced.

· Preventing fire starting and spreading – Prior to the setting up of fire alarm system or fire hydrant system, it is necessary to go through proper inspection of the building, its occupants, places of exit and the building plan. By understanding these layouts, it would be possible for turnkey project contractors to design a particular plan for the particular building. This kind of assessment is the beginning of a good protection system in a building and helps prevent the spread of fire. By doing an assessment and regular fire and safety audit, it will be possible for the fire prevention engineering departments to come up with strategic plans to help control the spread. In many cases, it so happens that the fire originates from a very minor source, which could have been prevented. But, due to lack of proper installation of the FM200 or HVWS & MVWS, nothing much could be done for this originating source and the fire spreads out rapidly, even though there are, adequate fire fighting equipments installed in the building.

· Evacuation from building with right directions – Helping people exit the buildings is another important target of the fire fighters. This is possible by utilising fire & safety audit from time to time, so that the fire protection services are extended towards ensuring fixing proper labels and directions for the residents and occupants of the building. In a rush, they will not only prevent the fire fighters from using the fire hydrant system and equipments of HVWS & MVWS, but they will get confused about the places from where they will come out of the building. Initially, the fire alarm system will help in knowing that there is fire in the building. Thereafter, proper directions of exit will let them escape out from the building.

While preventing measures with fire prevention engineering and fire detection system can be fruitful, the occupants of the building should be sensitised and told about the course of action during fire. When fire protection services are provided by high quality turnkey project contractors and fire & safety consultancy, these people are able to handle all aspects of protecting the life and property of the building occupants in the best possible manner.
