When confronted with a fire protection problem, building management is often desperately short on information and know-how in this critical component of protection for their own facility. It is not that the material is hard to grasp, but that there is so much of it that makes the task seem so daunting. Touching on the many subfields of fire protection engineering, Fire Protection for Commercial Facilities deconstructs the issues of fire prevention and life safety into easily digested information. Written in a conversational tone that makes the concepts easy to understand, this book presents systems and practices that can increase a facility's ability to avoid fires, limit the development and spread of fires, and effectively control fires. It provides guidance for decision making regarding what can be effectively controlled in-house, and what should be contracted out to relieve the workload burden of the in-house staff. The information offered augments a broad range of expertise common to building or plant engineers, keeping them abreast of the divergent subfields of fire prevention. Every facility manager dreams of the day when absolutely nothing goes wrong, the week where no new unforeseen problems occur. A fire protection problem is just one of the many emergencies that might spoil this dream. Delineating current and time-tested fire protection practices, this book explores the wide array of fire protection engineering applications encountered during typical facility operations so that facilities managers can be well-versed, informed, and better able to handle fire-related incidents.

Featuring a groundbreaking shift to a risk- vs. occupancy-based approach, the 2012 NFPA 99 ushers in a new era in health care safety! In response to an increasingly decentralized health care system, a growing array of high-tech procedures, and new security demands, the 2012 NFPA 99 has reinvented itself to reflect a new environment where it is the risk that a procedure poses to patients and staff, not the location where it is conducted, that defines safety guidelines. Its new title -- Health Care Facilities Code -- signifies that it is rewritten to make performance criteria for health care facilities more enforceable and adoptable. Completely reorganized, this new benchmark advances health care facility safety with major changes such as... * A new risk-based framework * A fully updated Chapter 5, Gas and Vacuum Systems, including additional maintenance requirements * New chapters on security, fire protection, and information technology * Operating rooms are considered a wet location unless a risk assessment of the area determines otherwise. Move up to a new level of protection and keep facilities up-to-code and patients and staff safe from harm. The 2012 NFPA 99 is essential for engineers, facility managers...AHJs...plumbers...gas and vacuum system installers, designers, and verifiers...security personnel...insurance companies...and manufacturers.
