    Default some questions for everyone

    i'm working on a project, and i'm hoping you'll answer the following questions for me. if you answer them as you see fit to interpret them, then that's great. i appreciate your feedback.

    1) pre-incident conditions
    2) fire prevention
    3) fire protection engineering

    how does your department deal with those.

    thanks!

    Default Yo...

    I think you subject matter is too broad. Can you break it
    down some?

    1) Building walkthroughs, pre plans. Trying to determine the best methods for each particular building, or type of building. No formal program, handled on a shift by shift basis. Relevant information to Fire Alarm so the info is available to responders.

    2) Full time Fire Prevention Officer. Handles inspections and investigations. School programs handled by shifts during fire prevention week.

    3) Thats why FPE's get a degree. Other than reveiewing their plans, we don't deal with it.

    Good luck,

    Dave

    We do it pretty much the same as hfd66truck.

    Our Local sponsors a smoke detector program. It is suppose to be for the elderly and 'less fortunate' families, but anyone who lives in the city can call and request for one.

    I agree these are very broad areas.

    1) pre-incident conditions
    Try NFPA 1620, Recommended Practices for Pre-Incident Planning

    2) fire prevention
    Two facets of fire prevention:
    a) Public Education
    b) Code Enforcement

    3) fire protection engineering
    Some departments employ FPE's, typically in Fire Prevention for plan review and inspection. Some hire FPE's on a contract basis (either because the department is not large enough to hire one full time or because the department needs one to handle a specific project). FPE's work for industry or large corporations. The federal gov't has a lot of FPE's. Some are consultants.

    If you care to refine your question, perhaps I can be of more assistance.
