Balanced Approach to Fire Protection

December 14

Learn the balance of fire design principles that can improve fire safety in buildings.

Structure fires and wildfires result in significant loss of life and property in the United States each year. In addition to the direct losses of fighting fires, such as relocating residents and rebuilding, large fire events can cause substantial indirect losses to communities. There has been an increase in single-family and multifamily structure fire losses partly due to the increased use of combustible construction methods. This presentation investigates the causes of these fires and provides balanced design recommendations using active and passive fire protection strategies.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to explain the reasons for the increase of fire losses in single family and multifamily buildings from structure fires and wildfires.
  • You will be able to describe how the building code has evolved to increase the reliance on active fire.
  • You will be able to recognize the balance fire design principles that can improve fire safety in buildings.
  • You will be able to discuss the contribution noncombustible materials such as concrete makes to fire safety.
