Fire Engineering Solutions - Be prepared for Fires!

The Department for Communities and Local Government reported that the fire services attended over 192,000 fires in the UK between April 2012 and March 2013. While this is data shows a decline in the number of fires from the previous year, this is still over 500 reported fires each day in the UK. With such figures and the potentially devastating aftermath of a fire, it is important to have provisions in place to help detect, prevent the spread of and reduce the risk of fires – especially in areas where there are a vast amount of people; specifically the workplace.

It is not just the flames of a fire that can cause damage; the heat produced by these flames and the smoke are both contributing factors to the mass of havoc left by a fire. Smoke is the biggest factor in human casualties with so many people being seriously injured – or worse – because of smoke inhalation compared to actually being burnt by a fire.

The best preventative action against the possible risk of a fire is to be prepared! Knowing and mapping possible fire exits, having systems in place to help the flow of air within a burning building as well as systems to help put out a fire can save lives and avoid excessive damage. These fire engineering solutions although simple really can make all the difference.

The likes of fire detection alarms should be fitted in all areas that people use to give them the earliest possible opportunity to get to safety. Team this with smoke ventilation systems to help reduce the imposing smoke of a fire and the likelihood of people being able to get away safely can only be improved. These fire engineering systems may not prevent a fire from starting but will most definitely reduce the number of causalities in the case of a fire. Sprinkler systems can also help to reduce the destruction caused by a fire, potentially containing the fire until fire safety units arrive. These integrated systems are triggered by smoke, catching the fire in its easiest stages.

Fully integrated fire engineering solutions are a worthwhile investment when considering the potential reduction of damages caused by an unpredictable fire - not least the fire systems ability to save lives. Many companies, including Fire Design Solutions, offer comprehensive fire safety packages to help protect against a fire and reduce its impact.
