This course will introduce you to fire protection engineering fundamentals related to building materials and design, water supply for fire protection, fire extinguishing systems, fire alarm systems, special occupancies and hazards, and storage of flammable and hazardous materials.

The student will begin with fire protection basics related to building materials and design, including fire areas, height limitations, interior fire spread, egress, finishes, insulation, roof coverings, air handling, plastic pipe and conduit, and fire retardant wood products. Additionally, the course covers the basics of water supply for fire protection including sprinklered facilities demand, demand for unsprinklered facilities, pressure requirements, quantities, on-site storage, fire pumps, and distribution systems.

Basic types of fire extinguishing systems will be discussed -- automatic sprinklers, foam (AFFF), standpipes, dry chemicals, carbon dioxide, Halon 1301 and portable extinguishers. The course also touches on the basic types of fire detection, alarm and reporting systems.

Special notice is given to fire protection fundamentals for certain buildings with special occupancies such as medical facilities, detention facilities, electronic and telecommunication facilities; and special hazards such as petroleum fuel storage, waterfront facilities, and aircraft maintenance facilities. And, the occupancy hazard classification system (light, ordinary group 1, ordinary group 2, special) will also be discussed.

This is a general introduction to fire protection engineering for buildings and should be valuable to engineers and others involved with planning, design and construction.
