Fire Service Features of Buildings
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides a brief outline on the fire service features of buildings.

The combined efforts of designers, code officials, and related stakeholders can result in safer workplaces for firefighters. When designs are tailored to better meet emergency service operational needs, the time and complexity needed to mitigate an incident is often reduced. The faster the fire service can respond, enter, locate the emergency incident, and safely operate in or near a building, the sooner they can usually resolve the incident in a safe manner. This, in turn, will likely increase the safety of building occupants, reduce property damage, and limit related indirect losses.

The purpose of this presentation is to increase the safety of emergency responders and building occupants by providing information about how firefighters typically interact with building features and fire protection systems during fires and similar emergencies. By better understanding the needs of the fire service, designers and code officials can work together to streamline fire service emergency operations within the built environment. This presentation also cites specific criteria for many of the building features discussed and code references. It also provides a general discussion of each feature, followed by a series of questions to ask and a list of resources to help users answer them.

This 2 PDH online interactive presentation is applicable to architects, engineers, planners, design technicians, code officials, and other stakeholders including building owners and developers, security professionals, and construction professionals who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the fire service features of buildings.
