Fire Protection Consulting Services Business Research Proposal

Excerpt from Research Proposal :



The requirements are more specific in terms of the size and placement of the fire extinguishers. These shall be located no further than 75 ft (23 m) from the Class D hazard. In this case, the placement of the fire extinguishers will be determined by the location of the metal fabrication facilities. Assuming that these are located in the center of the room, and that the distance from the center to the corners is not longer than 75 ft, the fire extinguishers can be located in the four corners of each of the rooms in which the metals are produced. The size will be determined by the particular metals being produced, however, it appears that 40B should be sufficiently strong to counter a potential fire hazard.

All fire extinguishers will be inspected every 30 days, with regular maintenance every year. Given the class of fire hazard, regular maintenance can be done at more frequent intervals, such as every 9 months. Training the occupants in the use of the extinguishers is important because of the class of fire hazard and the fact that this can be an extremely powerful fire that could do much destruction before the Fire Department is actually able to arrive at the scene. Training can be done with the local Fire Department, every month for new employees.

Maintenance activity for all components

Most of the components will need regular maintenance, at least every year. As shown, some of these, including the fire extinguishers, will need maintenance sooner, every 6 or 9 months, in order to ensure their functionality in a fire hazard situation. As emphasized previously, training and seminars with the employees are essential in order to for the personnel to be prepared to use the implemented system in case of a fire. Fire training will be part of the regular training process for any employees and will be performed monthly.

Conclusion

The importance of a properly designed fire protection system can never be underestimated. If this is done correctly, it will most likely help the client save lives and goods by containing the fire, alerting the Fire Department in time and ensuring that a properly fire-trained personnel is operating on the premise, one that can intervene in the case of a fire hazard.

In the case of Ajax Metal Fabricators, the particularities of the business (manufacturing of metals) brought to the table a new range of issues, such as increased heat in the working spaces. The adequate response included automated sprinklers, along with fire extinguishers located in all corners of the room, at 75 feet from the center and from the manufacturing units. P and L-type alarms were given preference over manual ones, the focus being on the alarms' capacity to immediately alert the Fire Department and their early warning capacities.
