Length: 61 pages

A key aspect of fire detection and alarm system is to identify a developing fire emergency in a timely manner, and to alert the building's occupants and fire emergency organizations. Depending on the anticipated fire scenario, building and use type, number of occupants and criticality of contents and mission, these systems can provide several main functions. First they provide a means to identify a developing fire either through manual or automatic means and second, they alert building occupants to a fire condition and the need to evacuate. The system can be designed to simultaneously alert the fire department or other emergency response organizations by means of a direct or relayed alarm notification signals. In addition to the alarm function, fire alarm and detection systems can also actuate other fire safety measures in a building.

The US Fire Administration says "Don't Forget the Smoke Alarms". Even though fire sprinklers are effective life safety devices you still need smoke alarms. Some fires can begin as smoldering fires that produce smoke and gases but don't generate enough heat to activate the sprinklers. Smoke alarms are needed to provide warning for these situations."

This course provides an overview of the major components which go to make up a fire alarm system.

This course is aimed at architects, building designers, electrical engineers, loss prevention professionals, contractors, civil estimators, HSE staff, facility managers and general audience.
