COURSE: 81-245 Fire Science Overview (3)
Although various perils may be of concern in a given situation, the threat of fire is universal. Because fire is one of the most damaging and demoralizing hazards, fire prevention and control must be the cornerstone of any comprehensive loss prevention program. No facility protection program is complete without clear, concise policies and programs to prevent or confront fire and other man-made or natural disasters. Topics covered in this course include fire behavior, fire codes, emergency planning, safeguards, hardware, protection systems and inspections.
