Elements of Fire Protection Engineering
We always look at the fire-fighters and firemen and consider them to be extremely brave and dedicated because they risk their lives to save the lives of others. But it is not as simple as it looks from the outside. Fire protection is an extremely vast and important topic because it can cause serious damage and hazard and can outburst anywhere and at any time because of no solid reason as such. And hence the engineers of the world have taken on the responsibility of making sure that fire prevention and protection, both are carried out well and in a smart manner. Thus, we would discuss some of the common elements that are included in the scope of fire protection engineering. Fire detection is one of the most important systems or elements that get covered under fire protection engineering. Engineers have developed and devised special alarm systems that detect smoke and ring an alarm bell for people to detect that there has been a fire outburst. Even the call systems installed in fire brigades come under the scope of this special field of engineering. Fire protection engineering also involves and takes care of active fire protection. The firemen don’t use their hands or blankets to save people but rather the engineers across the globe have developed special devices and techniques to be used by people for preventing fire and protecting lives from the same. Smoke control and management includes the development and use of tools or devices that can help in managing the level of smokes in a premise. Controlling smoke is also as important as controlling fire and engineers play an extremely significant and important role in managing the same and in making sure no hazards are caused because of it. Engineers have also specified designs and layouts for buildings and other structures that can protect the properties of being damaged. Fire protection engineering involves the use of special structure and design for the buildings for making...
