Fire accident in an industry., Chemistry

If there is a fire accident in an industry, what  a safety enginner will do?


Fire engineering is the application of engineering and science principles to protect property, people and their environments from the harmful and destructive effects of fire and smoke. It encompasses fire protection engineering which focuses on fire suppression, detection, and mitigation and fire safety engineering which focuses on human behavior and preserving a tenable environment for evacuation from a fire. In the United States fire protection engineering is often used to include fire safety engineering.

The discipline of fire engineering includes, but is not exclusive to:

    * Fire detection - fire alarm systems and brigade call systems
    * Active fire protection - fire suppression systems
    * Passive fire protection - fire and smoke barriers, space separation
    * Smoke control and management
    * Escape facilities- Emergency exits, Fire lifts etc.
    * Building design, layout, and space planning
    * Fire prevention programs

Fire protection engineers recognize risks and design safeguards that aid in preventing, controlling, and mitigating the effects of fires.

Fire engineers building owners, assist architects  and developers in evaluating buildings'' life safety and property protection goals.

Fire engineers are also employed as fire investigators, including such very large-scale cases as the analysis of the collapse of the World Trade Centers.

NASA uses fire engineers in its space program to help improve safety.

Fire engineers are also employed to give 3rd party review for performance based fire engineering solutions submitted in support of local building regulation applications
